Cody and the Heart of a Champion
author: Tricia Springstubb
illustrator: Eliza Wheeler
In Cody’s life, some people keep her on her toes — just like Mother Nature, who is warm one day and snowy the next. Or like Cody’s brother, Wyatt, who has started wearing collared shirts because his girlfriend likes them. Meanwhile, Pearl has begun playing soccer, and it’s all she can talk about, while Spencer is busy creating something mysterious and is never around to play. It seems like everything around Cody is changing, from seasons to friendships, but if she can just navigate it all with her trademark enthusiasm and charm, maybe the most important things will stay the same.
“Accepting the inevitable and powering through are the enjoyable lessons tucked into the fourth installment of this sturdy series. . . . If change must happen, Cody’s good company.” — Kirkus Reviews
