We finished reading Umbrella Summer just a little while ago. I know it brought out strong emotions in me. I laughed at Annie's worries, but wasn't able to finish reading it out loud to classes without sniffling my way through the ending. How did this book make you feel? Were you able to connect with the text in a special way? Have you ever worried more than you should?
