About the Book
Miranda A. Grant, I’m getting a baby sister….Not!, is about a ten year old girl who is tired of being the only girl in a family with three children, her being the middle child. Miranda watches her brothers do things together and wishes she had someone to do things with too. She begs her parents for a baby sister for an entire year, before they agree to try to give her one. She waits ten long months for her mom to get a baby in her tummy, and then she has to wait nine more just to see the new baby. The whole time, she works very hard to help her poor tired mother do chores. After all the waiting and work, the time finally comes to see her new baby sister. Only, it’s not a sister at all. It’s another boy. Miranda realizes he’s just too cute to want to send him back. After a while, she figures out that he likes her better than her two brothers and ends up so close to him that she wouldn’t trade him for two sisters.
