Cody and the Rules of Life

Cody ponders trust, conscience, friendship and family in this thoughtful, funny third book in the series.

Wyatt’s brand new bike, The Cobra, has been stolen. Cody feels terrible for her big brother. But deep down, in that place where she keeps feelings she’s not supposed to feel, she’s also a little glad. Without The Cobra, Wyatt won’t be riding off and leaving her in the dust. Meanwhile, new friend Pearl persuades Cody to give her Gremlin, Cody’s favorite toy. How can Cody get him back? It’s not stealing if it’s your own toy—or is it? On the road of life, Dad tells her, sometimes you’ve got to make a U-e. Cody ponders trust, conscience, friendship and family in this thoughtful, funny third book in the series.
