Product description


Praise for Counting Thyme
A 2016 Nerdy Book Club Award Winner

"Debut author Conklin writes with a pitch-perfect middle-grade voice... A nice choice for middle-grade readers who enjoy heartfelt and emotional novels."--Booklist

"Thyme's remarkable perseverance and resilience will inspire readers of Conklin's compassionate tale."--Kirkus Reviews

"[A] sweet book that will strum the heartstrings of readers."--School Library Journal

"Conklin successfully weaves together the shifting dynamics of a loving family under crisis with the less dramatic but equally heartfelt turmoil of coming of age in a new environment."--Publishers Weekly

"Counting Thyme shows how a serious illness can tear the fabric of a family apart, and love can stitch it back together again. This deeply moving story of family, friendship, and belonging will settle deep in your heart and stay there long after the final page is read."--Donna Gephart, award-winning author of Death by Toilet Paper and Lily and Dunkin

"Melanie Conklin brings New York vividly to life in Counting Thyme, a gentle story fueled by heart, hope, and beautifully developed characters."--Pat Schmatz, award-winning author of Bluefish

About the Author

Melanie Conklin is a writer, reader, and all-around lover of books and those who create them. She lives in South Orange, New Jersey, with her husband and two small maniacs. Melanie spent a decade as a product designer and approaches her writing with the same three-dimensional thinking and fastidious attention to detail. Counting Thyme is her debut novel.
