Panel Description: Relative Hijinks
Families. They love us, support us, save the day, and, occasionally (or not so occasionally), embarrass the heck out of us. The families in new books by Jennifer Ziegler (Revenge of the Happy Campers), Karina Yan Glaser (The Vanderbeeks of 141st Street) and Victoria Jamieson (Roller Girl and All's Faire in Middle School) all get into their share of helpful hijinks. They also remind us of the importance of those connections forged with the family we inherit and the family we choose.
