Publisher's Summary

Return to Harlem's "wildly entertaining" family in this funny, heartwarming sequel. 

When catastrophe strikes their beloved upstairs neighbors, the Vanderbeeker children set out to build the best, most magical healing garden in Harlem - in spite of a locked fence, thistles, trash, and the conflicting plans of a wealthy real estate developer. 

While Isa is off at sleepaway orchestra camp, Jessie, Oliver, Hyacinth, and Laney are stuck at home in the brownstone with nothing to do but get on one another's nerves. But when catastrophe strikes their beloved upstairs neighbor, their sleepy summer transforms in an instant as the Vanderbeeker children band together to do what they do best: make a plan. They will create the most magical healing garden in all of Harlem. 

In this companion to The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street, experience the warmth of a family and their community as they work together to bring a little more beauty and kindness to the world, one thwarted plan at a time.

I LOVE THIS!!!

I am a big fan of the Vanderbeekers series, so I was super exited when this book came out. I have been waiting for months for this to come out, and I think it one of the best books yet.

Lovely read - 5th grade + subjects

I loved the reference to South Carolina, made me even more tied to the story. Great use of personification. Perfect for a classroom or pleasure read.
