Because being scared stinks!
Seven-year-old Veronica Conti knows a thing or two. She knows that recess is the best part of the day. And if someone, like Maya, doesn’t play at recess because she’s too afraid of bugs, well, that’s a HUGE problem! And it has to be fixed, pronto!
But when Veronica's big ideas to help Maya backfire, she learns that sometimes, to help others, you need a little help yourself.
Before you can say “bugging out,” Veronica forms a team supreme with her best friend Cora, total tech whiz Ezra, and Mr. Know-It-All, her bossy big brother, Jude. Together, they can tackle Maya’s problem, and every problem! Together, they are the Fix-It Friends!
This is the first adventure in The Fix-It Friends chapter book series. Author Nicole C. Kear anchors humor with lots of heart, as the group learns to deal with fears and worries.
Includes a toolbox of expert advice on how to face your fears!
