People who enjoyed A Little Princess, The Parent Trap, or Mary Christmas may enjoy reading Timothy Fish's new book, Searching For Mom. In this book, Mark Dawson has raised Sara alone. Sara has never had a mother and while she has a good relationship with her Dad, the influence of this single parent on her life is evident. Sara knows how to fight and can beat up boys older than her. She dresses like a boy. The only girly thing in her room is a doll and that has been relegated to holding Sara's baseball.

Timothy Fish has woven together an entertaining story with enough twists and turns to keep the reader guessing all the way to the end of the book.My mother would bake cookies everyday and would let me have as many as I wanted before supper, but I wouldna#39;t want very many because she was a good cook and ...
