    [synopsis] => From Newbery Honor Winner Cynthia Lord, a brilliant story about how to find home when everything around us is changing.
	Mia and her mom visit Grandma in Maine every summer, but this year Mia is going alone. Her mom will stay behind to get their house ready to sell. It'll be a new start, she says, after the divorce.
	Mia doesn't want a new start. She'd rather everything just stayed the same! At least things will be the same at Grandma's, though. Mia will walk to town for ice cream, and wait by the water, watching for birds, just like always.
	Then Mia meets Grandma's know-it-all new neighbor, who's just her age. Cayman acts like he belongs at Grandma's house. He acts like he's the expert on everything. And when he and Mia spot an unusual white bird of prey, he acts like it's his job to find out what it is.
	Unless, that is, Mia finds out first. And, in her effort to prove herself to him, she makes a decision that will change things for the town, for the bird, for Cayman, and even for herself. Can Mia stop what she's put into motion?
	Acclaimed author Cynthia Lord, with her trademark sensitivity, weaves her love of nature with a profound reflection on what it means to be at home in a changing world.

	"A coming-of-age tale told with tenderness and compassion." - Kirkus Reviews
	Praise for Because of the Rabbit:
	2020 ALSC Notable Children's Book
	* "A young girl learns about honesty, integrity, and friendship... The beauty in Lord's tale of finding home in a new community is the way Emma's grandfather reaches her with his stories of magic even after he is gone, teaching her important lessons about following through on one's promises... Delightful." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review
	* "Emma learns the rewards of patience and understanding the perspectives of others. [An] insightful story-lucidly written from the heart." - Publishers Weekly, starred review
	* "Lord uses clear, straightforward sentences to relate experiences in ways that speak directly to children. A heartfelt chapter book with broad appeal." - Booklist, starred review       Cynthia Lord is the award-winning author of Rules, a Newbery Honor Book and a Schneider Family Book Award winner, as well as the critically acclaimed Half a Chance, A Handful of Stars, and Because of the Rabbit.

	Everything was just the way I hoped it would be. Cozy and familiar, with only fun little surprises, like finding treats in my top dresser drawer.
	Not big hard surprises, like finding out things had changed without me. I'd had enough of those surprises to last me a lifetime.
	But one problem with surprises is that they're sneaky.
	You never know what kind is coming next.
