the jam in the sandwich
Sometimes that's how PK feels, squeezed in between her supersmart older sister, Megan, and her superadorable younger sister, Rabbit -- especially now, with Megan almost a teenager and becoming impossible, and Rabbit worrying about going to kindergarten. Why can't people stay the same?
But there's an even bigger change afoot: Mama has decided they should move to a larger apartment. How can they leave behind the big blue chair that's almost like a member of the family? But maybe, just maybe, in a new home PK can find out what makes her as special as her sisters.

Maybe Yes, Maybe No, Maybe Maybe is a short story that is both sweet and relevant for today's youth. Colored by the experiences of her youth, Susan Patron gives us an endearing story of how three sisters deal which each other and the anxieties brought on by having to move to a new apartment. Abigail Halpin, also one of three sisters, provides sweet illustrations well matched to Susan Patron's story. I love the ants!
"Maybe Yes, Maybe No, Maybe Maybe" written by Susan Patron was a good read. Although the main character PK is a girl, my mom said she wanted me to read the book because we both are middle children. My younger sister and I really liked the hamper stories. If I have the chance, I'd read some other books written by this author. Reviewed by: Marquis, 9 years old 5th grade
