Libby Meek is busy -- too busy. Between art class and youth group, skiing and piano lessons, Libby discovers that she no longer has time to just play. When her parents ignore Libby's demands for more free time, she decides to go on strike to prove her point. Along the way, both Libby and her parents discover the importance of balancing work and play.

[Fry Reading Level - 3.9


"The story line is laid out in a manner that is easily followed, and what there is of plot tension is resolved at the end. Vocabulary level is consistent across the 14 chapters. I would suggest that the content of this book will appeal to younger readers in the age range and primarily to girls. It might serve well as a read-aloud."

Recommended.
