    1. You know how you get tired of reading the same thing over and over again I was in that kind of rut It s not any of the books were really bad, but I wanted something different I wanted to feel like what it was to be a kid again You know how you think you won t ever forget Well inevitably you do forget some things Thank goodness we have authors who can remember enough so young readers will want to read If it weren t for authors who wrote for kids I know I probably wouldn t have become a reader Any [...]

    8. Young Anne is a dear one her older brother died earlier in the year and the story spans the first part of July, ending on his birthday reminder Annie is a true worrywart if not on the brink of hypochondria as a result of her brother s rare death condition Beautifully written and I loved how the book, Charlotte s Web, was included to bring closure for not only Anne.

    11. I really enjoyed reading Umbrella Summer by Lisa Graff This story was about losing someone you love and learning to cope with the grief that follows The book reminded me of losing my great grandmother this past summer Annie, the main character in this story, became very fearful about life and was extremely cautious about everything in her life I was totally able to relate to Annie s feelings When you lose someone you love, it changes the way you view life I also understood why Annie was so angry [...]

    12. Teen Reader Reaction Umbrella Summer is a heart warming and takes its readers on a journey through a healing process The generally upbeat tone and relaxed pace contribute to the book being both uplifting and enjoyable to read Instead of being heart stopping and intensely suspenseful, the story flows through a sequence of events recounted in a way that eliminates the need for plot twists and action filled scenes.Although the intended audience is most likely the upper elementary and middle school [...]

    13. The summer after her brother died from a rare accident, Annie Richards is overprotective and far too careful in everything she does She wears a helmet when she is walking down the street, uses all of her allowance on Band Aids, and isn t herself any What if she got a scratch and it became infected What if she got gangrene Anything and everything can bring a sickness, deformity, or future medical problem When an old lady moves into the house across the street, Annie realizes that maybe, metaphori [...]

    16. Using the words careful and worry would be an understatement for describing main character, Annie Richards.Her brother died of something unexpected, and ever since, she has to be extra careful, and takes life too seriously, like a grown up She is missing out on her childhood.Thankfully, Mrs Harper, an elderly lady moved in across the street to the haunted house and becomes friends with Annie, and helps her see life in a new way Because of Mrs Harper, Annie s umbrella starts to close, and she sta [...]

    17. Bittersweet funny story of how Annie comes to terms with her brother Jared s death Ten year old Annie has changed since Jared died She buys ace bandages every week from Lippy s, stops doing obstacle courses, wears her bike helmet even when off the bicycle, steals a great big book about preventing illnesses and is convinced she has Ebola When Ms Finch moves into the haunted house Annie s best friend Rebecca is convinced though it doesn t look much like one she learns that maybe she should start c [...]

    18. You don t need that protection any Because the sun is starting to shine again It s coming out slowly, but it s coming And if you keep up your umbrella, then you re not ever going to see it.Actual rating 3.5 starsThis is a really cute book about moving on Annie s a bit annoying at times, but then again, she is only nine ten I really liked Mrs Finch, the new neighbor who really helps Annie patch things up She s so nice I especially liked the ending, because everything, and I mean everything, gets [...]

    19. This one came highly recommended by my 9 year old daughter I thought the cover was cute and the title intriguing I wasn t expecting anything nearly as sweet, insightful and well written Absolutely beautiful story of overcoming loss and grief told through a bright, funny 10 year old girl Icing on the cake was the references to my all time favorite children s book Charlotte s Web This is one is so full of gems of wisdom, that I m likely to reread it from time to time Yay, OBOB Oregon Battle of the [...]

    20. I felt sorry for Annie for most of this book, but like its companion, Lost in the Sun, this book has a great message about getting through grief, and it puts it in a context that teens and younger kids may be able to understand Annie is the little sister of the boy who died in Lost in the Sun The metaphor of Annie s grief being an umbrella was enlightening If you liked Lost in the Sun, you ll want to read this one.

    21. The book is about a girl named Annie who is paranoid about everything after her brother s death She is starting to close out her friends from her life from her fear of getting injured or sick She has changed into a whole new person and everyone is concerned about her A new neighbor moves in shortly after She might be the key to Annie stepping out of her umbrella of sadness.

    22. Sweet and sad and a little hokey There is some use for sad my brother died and I m trying to deal with it books, but it has been done better in other novels Unless you have a large populations of morose children who like to read this sort of thing you probably already have something on your self to fit the niche.

    23. What a beautifully sad but happy, heart warming story I loved every bit of it.Annie is so adorable and Mrs Finch was such a sweet, kind hearted person.I ll definitely be reading of Lisa Graff s books.

    24. This was a heartwarming story A story of a family in the throes of a terrible grief and how a young girl learns to deal with the grief and the loss and begins to come out on the other side with the help of a special neighbor.

    25. A powerful book about healing.Graff always writes with such an authentic voice, it would be hard not to appreciate everything she crafts.
