Think The Penderwicks on an army base!

When the Bailey family moves to an army base, Tom, Charlotte, and Rosie have lots to do! They get to make new friends, visit the huge pool, and, unfortunately, need to deal with the base bully.

As they explore their new home, they quickly realize there is a mystery on the base: an abandoned building long-rumoured to be haunted. But when they go to investigate, they don’t find a ghost, just lots of weird equipment — and a suspicious man sneaking around inside.

They know it’s up to them figure out the base’s secrets — and prove to everyone that no bully can keep the Bailey kids down.

Army Brats is a fun, antic-filled middle-grade romp about friendships, bravery, and being true to yourself. It pairs an appealing setting with the talents of Daphne Benedis-Grab, who can skillfully handle multiple perspectives and the complex dynamics between friends and siblings.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for The Angel Tree:

“Part mystery and part holiday high jinks, this will be a little gift to readers.” — Booklist

“ A satisfying read on many level — misunderstandings are resolved, lessons are learned, friendships

evolve, and positive behavior is rewarded. Be sure to have a box of tissues handy.”
