Because losing a loved one is hard.
Ziggy isn't just a pet guinea pig. He's a rock star, a friend, and a part of Ezra's family. So when he dies, Ezra is more upset than Veronica has ever seen him. She can't just sit back and watch a friend suffer. Something must be done! Laughter is the best medicine, so tons of fun is just what the Fix-It Friends order.
But when nothing seems to shake Ezra's sadness, the Fix-It crew learns that grief isn't something to get around, but something to get through . And with good friends by his side, Ezra will do just that.
Accessible and funny, the fourth book in The Fix-It Friends series by Nicole C. Kear handles a sensitive topic with lots of heart.
