About The Book

Who Is Loved Best?
Because she's the oldest and can do the most, Carolyn is sure she is loved the best. But then she begins to have doubts: Her mom spoils her little sister when she's sick, her parents post her little brother's perfect math quiz on the fridge but barely notice her own perfect paper, and they make a bigger fuss over her brother's and sister's small parts in the spring play than they do her speaking part. But when things don't happen exactly as Carolyn expected, she learns an important lesson about what it means to be loved best.
