From prolific author Megan E. Bryant comes the first book in a young middle-grade series about nine-year-old Abby, a girl trying to grapple with all the chaos that can come from growing up.

For nine-year-old Abby McAdams, everything seems to be changing.

Her cousin and best friend, Zoe, has moved across the country, her mom is going back to work, and Abby is stuck in the only after-school activity still available--running--which she absolutely loathes. Her perspective on the world is changing, too, after an encounter in her community sheds light on the issue of homelessness in her town. On top of everything, sudden changes in Abby's body mean she has to deal with things like deodorant, bras, and uncomfortable conversations. And without her best friend by her side, she's not sure she can handle it all.

She's not a grown-up yet, but she definitely doesn't feel like a little kid anymore. She's Abby, in between.

Ready or Not! is an accessible and positive exploration of the early stages of puberty, and is the perfect pairing to nonfiction guides like The Care and Keeping of You: The Body Book for Younger Girls .
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this first of a new early-middle-grade series, nine-year-old Abby is not ready for so many changes. Her cousin and BFF, Zoe, is moving away, her mom is going back to work after Abby's dad lost his job, her body is changing, and she's having to start an after--school running club, even though she can't stand running. For the first time, Abby also notices the number of people who don't have homes, and she becomes involved in helping create a small community for the homeless. Witty and clever, Abby works through her frustrations and worries, working hard to help others and make a difference, while finding that communicating with her parents brings relief as she realizes they love and support her. This fast-paced series starter does a wonderful job of exploring the wide variety of changes that young readers face, as well as the topics of the unhoused, job loss, and financial insecurity, leaving readers with a sense of possibility for the future and inspiration that they can change the world for the better."
