Ryan Hart finds herself waiting on lots of things — like for her new sister to be born healthy, for her new recipes to turn out right, for that summer camp trip to go better than she fears! And of course Ryan is facing these new challenges and new experiences in her classic style, with a bright outlook and plenty of spirit.
But nothing seems to be going quite as she planned, and sometimes she feels sad about the changes going on in her life, from the upheavals caused by her mother's pregnancy to the struggles of evolving friendships. Fortunately, in the end she realizes that there is room in her life for all sorts of people — and many kinds of love. This sequel to Ways to Make Sunshine is full of charm and more of Ryan's trademark bright outlook!
