Jenna‘s life is completely changed when her Great Aunt Tannie falls and has to move in with Jenna and her mother. Jenna struggles with the fact that Aunt Tannie is not as physically capable as she used to be. Aunt Tannie used to ride a motorcycle and travel the world after all! Plus, her mother is acting strange. She’s been very stressed and doesn’t have as much time for Jenna as before. Jenna wants more than anything to get back to the way things used to be. Will this become the new normal? Can she get used to Mom missing soccer games and Aunt Tannie struggling with her physical abilities, always trying to do things she isn’t able to do? Find out in “Two for Joy.” This book really found me in one of the hardest times of my life. My grandma recently had passed away and somehow this book was really comforting. Many children like me have aging relatives and parents struggling to manage everything. This book helps them see how they can help the ones they love through trying times. If you have a sensitive child, he or she might be a little sad reading the book. But don’t worry, no one dies and the sad parts are balanced with happy ones. This is a truly inspiring story. I highly recommend this book to ages 6-10 depending on the reading level of your child. Reviewed by Martha C, age 11, Ohio Mensa
