Verbena Colter knows she’s bad. Bad to the bone. How could she not be, with a dad like hers But the thing is, she doesn’t want to be mean. In fact, she doesn’t really want to be Verbie. Enter Pooch, a new boy in town who moves into the “haunted house” next door. He’s from New York City, and doesn’t know anything about Verbie or her family. So Verbie takes the opportunity to be someone else entirely. And what starts out as a game leads Verbie into a surprising, funny, and heartwarming journey of self-discovery.
Industry Reviews

"There are many passages that could jump-start a booktalk and get this into kids' hands." -- School Library Journal

"Life and death weave together in strange ways one summer for twelve year old Verbena Colter. Sarah Weeks tells her story with warmth, grace, and deep compassion. A stunning novel about life's many complications and how we struggle to grow up, into ourselves." -- Brian Selznick, author and Caldecott winning illustrator of THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET

"Verbena is a character you will not want to leave. An endearing story, heartfelt, and buoyant." -- Pam Munoz Ryan, author of ESPERANZA RISING

"Young readers will recognize their struggles to grow and understand their own lives, while laughing, and crying along the way. Nothing simple here; just fine writing." -- Avi, Newbery Medal-winning author of CRISPIN: THE CROSS OF LEAD
