Angel's Mother's Boyfriend

Judy Delton, Author, Margot Apple, Author, Margot Apple, Illustrator Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) $16 (176p) ISBN 978-0-395-39968-2
Delton's heroine Angel is off on her mental trampoline again, jumping to the wrong conclusions. The sudden changes in her mother are misconstrued as crimes, and quick-witted Angel is ready at the rescue. But her mother's not in trouble, she's just met a man. Or is this even a worse crime? After all, when Rudy comes to visit, he seems to stay forever, practically moving in. Then he brings all his belongings to their town and gets a job as a TV clown. What could be more embarrassing? Angel's acceptance of this marvelous man is slow enough, and the page-turning, sprightly humor of characters they can touch will help readers overlook the path's being rather straight and smooth.
