Because of the Rabbit

by Cynthia Lord Year Published: 2019

On the last night of summer, Emma and her Maine game warden father rescue a small domestic rabbit stuck in a fence. The very next day Emma starts fifth grade after years of being home schooled, excited and apprehensive about making new friends. Then she is paired with Jack who does not seem to fit in with anyone--except that they share a love of animals, which draws them together, because of the rabbit. (Grades 3-5)
