Brightly Family Book Club: Fish in a Tree


Welcome to the ninth installment of the Brightly Family Book Club, where we help families find engaging stories to enjoy together! This month’s book is perfect for the “back to school” season. Fish in a Tree, by Lynda Mullaly Hunt, is an emotionally charged story that captures the ups and downs of school, friendships, and the search for identity experienced by tweens and young teens. This is one of those brilliant books that leaves us better than it found us — with greater empathy and a larger appreciation of ourselves and others.
