Family Game Night and Other Catastrophes by Mary E. Lambert

Reviewed by Jane Oliver-Purton (Library Staff)

Annabelle has a secret so secret that she won’t let her friends within five miles of her house; a secret, that when it slips, Annabelle discovers who’s on her side, and that turns out to be more people than she ever expected. She’s also pretty sure she likes a boy, and he might like her, too. So… What to do? Take a risk and let the secret out? Do what she can to help make the secret something better? Annabelle misses the days when they had family game nights, and when Grandma Nora shows up, there’s a glimmer of possibility that they might get back those night after all. Mary Lambert has crafted a perfect middle-grade story about a subject we don’t hear much about. One that proves anything is possible if you have a few people in your corner.
