Welcome to the family
Family Tree is a new series from Ann M. Martin (the author of The Baby-sitters Club books—one of our all-time faves!) that explores one family through four generations of girls. In the debut novel, Better to Wish, it’s 1930 and we meet 8-year-old Abby Nichols.

Abby can’t imagine what her future holds. She lives with her quiet mother, her angry father, and her sometimes annoying, sometimes sweet sister, Rose, in a small town in Maine. One of her best friends is a boy named Orrin, whom her father doesn’t want her talking to. She’s known her other best friend, Sarah, forever, and doesn’t think they’ll ever be apart.

But Abby’s world is changing fast. Soon there will be new siblings to take care of, a new house to move into, and new friends to meet. There will also be good-byes to say and hard choices to make.

In this incredible new series, bestselling author Ann M. Martin brings that past and the present together one girlhood at a time, and the result is a remarkable look at four generations in one memorable family.
