Because being scared stinks!
Seven-year-old Veronica Conti knows a thing or two. She knows that recess is the best part of the day. And if someone, like Maya, doesn’t play during recess because she’s too afraid of bugs, that’s a HUGE problem! Problems need to be fixed.
Veronica learns, though, that when you try to fix an issue on your own, you might make things a tiny bit worse. Or maybe a lot worse.
So before you can say “bugging out,” Veronica forms a team with her best friend Cora, total tech whiz Ezra, and Mr. Know-It-All—her bossy big brother, Jude. Together, they can tackle Maya’s problem and every problem! Together, they are the Fix-It Friends!
The first adventure in The Fix-It Friends chapter book series anchors humor with lots of heart, as the group learns to deal with fears and phobias.
Includes a toolbox of expert advice on how to face your fears!
