Winner of the Sheila A. Egoff Children's Book Prize in Canada, The Baby Project tells the poignant story of a family forced to make hard adjustments. Jessica and her brother Simon are somewhat shocked when their high-powered engineer mother announces she is pregnant. While Simon is off in his own teenage world of sports and music, 11-year-old Jessica is more focused on home, the punk tenant in the basement, and her best friend Margaret. She and her stay-at-home dad share excitement in anticipating the new baby, and when Lucie arrives it is the happiest time in Jessica's life. But soon the entire household is turned upside down by the tragedy of the baby's sudden death. First published in hardcover as The Family Project, this realistic story, by turns funny and sad, tender and moving, is a powerful and sensitive look at a child coming to terms with death and grief. The Baby Project will long remain in the memory of young readers.At least with Christmas you could open little doors on the advent calendar and no matter what else happened, by the time that last door was open, Christmas had come. But babies! You didna#39;t even know when for sure. Mum said July 3, maybe.
