Absolutely everything changes for Maia now that she is an orphan. She even moves from a boarding school in London to the untamed wilds of Brazil. But she finds that Brazil is truly amazing- the Amazon River, the dense jungle, and the birth of new friendships. Read this book and get caught up in its vivid images, descriptive dialog, and memorable characters.

The Just-So Woman has a tidy home and a regular schedule. When she sits down for breakfast and is out of butter, she changes her routine to make some.
