TOS Review: Circle C Beginnings #4…. “Andi’s Scary School Days”

Written by: Susan K. Marlow, Illustrated by Leslie Gammelgaard

“Andi wants no part of school. School means being away from the ranch all day and sitting next to a boy who throws dead flies at her. Andi didn’t think she was afraid of anything—until now. Being sent to the corner for something she didn’t do is the last straw. Andi’s leaving. And she’s not going back.”
