Remembering Mrs. Rossi

By Amy Hest
Illustrated by Heather Maione

Mementos from her mother's students help a young girl to grieve in a middle-grade novel by award-winning author Amy Hest.

Eight-year-old Annie lives in a sunny apartment in Manhattan with her father, Professor Rossi. Life would be pretty good if only Annie didn't so achingly miss her mother. When Mrs. Rossi died suddenly, she left not only Annie but also a classfull of students — who pour out their hearts in a scrapbook Annie will treasure forever. With tenderness and humor, Amy Hest reveals the struggles of a father and daughter as they forge a new life together.
