Martin, Ann M. A Corner of the Universe. New York: Scholastic, 2002.
Hattie’s life changed forever the summer her uncle Adam came home. She didn’t even know she had an Uncle Adam. He’d always lived in a school for people with disabilities. Here’s what Hattie has to say about that summer.
“My father’s movies are great, but they don’t begin to tell the story of the summer. What’s left out is more important than what is there. Dad captured the good times, only the good times. The parts he left out are what changed my life” (xiii).
To find out what happened that summer, read A Corner of the Universe by Ann M. Martin.
