Planet Jupiter
Author: Jane Kurtz

Language: English

ISBN-10: 0060564865

“United in their determination to leave Portland, [Jupiter and Edom] hatch plans to earn money for bus tickets even as, despite themselves, they put down tentative roots...The vivid characters and fascinating urban village they inhabit . . . hold readers’ interest throughout. A solid middle-grade family story.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Playful yet introspective…Kurtz subtly conveys the girls’ underlying fears of abandonment, as well as the idiosyncratic but determined efforts of Jupiter’s mother and her friend Topher to provide a “forever family” for the children. A host of quirky and appealing characters rounds out this engaging, empathetic story.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Fifth-grader Jupiter and her family are free spirits...Jupiter has a fresh voice that extols being unburdened, even as the story shows her that sometimes adding is better than subtracting.” (Booklist)
