A moving tale of love, loss, friendship and family complemented by Maureen's signature witty humour.
Letter from the editor at Hot Key Books
It is so exciting to be able to bring Maureen's first published title to the UK - especially while she is celebrating her reign as Queen of Teen. THE KEY TO THE GOLDEN FIREBIRD is classic Maureen Johnson - funny, honest and poignant, featuring characters that you can't help but root for, especially poor Pete who starts the first chapter missing his pants (the British kind of pants, as well as the American kind of pants). Sara O'Connor, Editorial Director
Life hasn't been the same for the Gold sisters since their father died. Brooks is not-so-quietly falling apart, May is desperately trying to keep everything and everyone together, and Palmer ...well, who knows what's up with Palmer. May is sure if she could just learn to drive, life would be so much simpler. But with both her mom and Brooks permanently AWOL, getting her licence is looking hopeless - until Pete offers to teach her. Pete, the incredibly annoying boy-next-door who's like a brother to May ...or is he?
This summer May's going to have to learn to cope with a lot more than just Driver's Ed if she wants to keep her family together, get the guy and maybe - just maybe - earn the key to the Golden Firebird.
