Maid for It

Now that Franny and her newly sober mom have moved to a cozy apartment above a laundromat, Franny’s looking forward to a life where her biggest excitement is getting top grades in math class. But when Franny’s mom gets injured in a car accident, their fragile life begins to crumble. There’s no way her mom can keep her job cleaning houses, which means she can’t pay the bills. Franny can’t forget what happened the last time her mom was hurt: the pills that were supposed to help became an addiction, until rehab brought them to Mimi’s laundromat and the support group she hosts.

Franny will not let addiction win again, even if she has to blackmail a school rival to help her clean houses. She’ll make the money and keep her mom sober — there’s no other choice. But what happens if this is one problem she can’t solve on her own? From the acclaimed author of Roll with It comes a relatable and deeply moving middle grade novel about a girl who's desperate to keep her family afloat... and has to realize when it's time to reach for a life raft.
