Just one week until school starts. One week until Mattie Breen is the new girl again. One week until she has to introduce herself - to try and make friends. Unless she can convince her uncle Potluck, the school janitor, to take her on as a custodial apprentice. Then she’ll be able to work with him at lunch and recess instead of needing to be with all the other fifth-graders. All she has to do is stick to the custodial wisdom she writes in her notebook.
Too bad her notebook doesn’t tell her what to do when that Quincy Sweet keeps popping up out of nowhere. Or how to talk to Mama about things that really matter. Or what to do when her carefully-thought-out apprentice plan comes crashing down around her. But maybe everything going wrong can begin to show Mattie what’s right. About sharing a part of herself. About doing one small, brave thing. About making a friend she can trust with her secrets - a friend who is hound dog true.

Very sweet story
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes - I love the narrator and the story is sweet and encouraging.
If you’ve listened to books by Linda Urban before, how does this one compare?
What about Catherine Taber’s performance did you like?
I love her voice and she reads the voice of a young girl very well.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
