Grandma’s gone. Now Sukey races against time to unravel the mysteries of a puzzling inheritance from a grandmother she never knew. A note and a key to Grandma’s ‘most precious treasure’, her sock drawer, sends Sukey on wild adventures she never expected. Will Sukey unlock the questions that lead to peace and connect her fragmented family? Can she find answers before the estate sale ends everything?
“In her debut book, Agauas mixes adventure and Christian allegory in a way that’s mildly reminiscent of C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia. This is most evident in the middle section, set in the city of Mare-C in the land of Evol (“love” spelled backward). Here, a Christlike figure called Amik, a beaver, repudiates the evil Skunk Bear, reminding everyone that “all debts are covered for all those that choose to live and love in Mare-C.” The scenes are imaginative and not too heavy-handed… A histrionic but reflective story about gaining maturity and knowledge.” – Kirkus Reviews
“In Grandma’s Sock Drawer, Agauas combines masterful storytelling, compelling dialogue and vivid imagery to tell the story of Sukey, a young girl, who was left her Grandma’s most prized possession, the key to her sock drawer. When Sukey unlocks the sock drawer she also unlocks the secrets to amazing adventures and important life lessons. This is a story of family, love, forgiveness and hope… a must read!” ~Angela Wright; Educator, Administrator
“Grandma’s Sock Drawer is a read and re-read fantasy novel that can stand alongside classic literature giants. It’s a fanciful tale filled with vivid imagery, suspense, and adventure. The story evolves with profound and important moral lessons for readers of every age. Great stories produce deep thought and reflection that stay with the reader long after the book is closed. This book is that kind of story. It’s a page turner that speaks volumes to a listening heart and a must read for middle schoolers everywhere. I highly recommend Grandma’s Sock Drawer for every child’s library.” ~Evonne L. Rogers; Retired educator of thirty years.
