Summary

Wonder meets Three Times Lucky in a story of empowerment as a young woman decides to help solve the mystery of multiple suspicious deaths in her group home.

Sally Miyake can't read, but she learns lots of things. Like bricks are made of clay and vitamin D comes from the sun. Sally is happy working in the kitchen at Sunnyside Plaza, the community center she lives in with other adults with developmental disabilities. For Sally and her friends, Sunnyside is the only home they've ever known.

Everything changes the day a resident unexpectedly dies. After a series of tragic events, detectives Esther Rivas and Lon Bridges begin asking questions. Are the incidents accidents? Or is something more disturbing happening?

The suspicious deaths spur the residents into taking the investigation into their own hands. But are people willing to listen?

Sunnyside Plaza is a human story of empowerment, empathy, hope, and generosity that shines a light on this very special world.

Good summer "read"

Loved it! Very uplifting! Listened with my daughter who is a mature 10 year old, and it inspired further discussion of the diversity in our world.

Nursing home resident

I have never reviewed an audiobook before, so I have nothing to compare it with and maybe shouldn’t have given it five stars. However, I really enjoyed this book. I live in a nursing home so I can relate to the people who are in this story. I very much enjoyed reader; she she was very expressive.
