    Lorelei King reads Susan Coolidge's classic tale about feisty Katy and her adventures. Twelve-year-old Katy lives with her father, Aunt Izzy, and five younger brothers and sisters in the little town of Burnet. Tall, tomboyish and with a head full of plans and dreams, she just can't help getting into scrapes - she loses her homework, is late for school and gets her siblings in trouble when she persuades them to stay up past bedtime playing noisy games.

    Ever since her mother died, 12-year-old Katy has attempted to look after her five younger brothers and sisters. Her father, Dr. Carr, depends on her to set a good example while he takes care of patients. But no matter how hard Katy tries to be good, trouble always finds her. She tears all her dresses and breaks the dishes. She forgets to do her homework, so she gets bad grades. And her quick temper hurts the feelings of those she loves the most. But the day she refuses to listen when Aunt Izzie forbids her to use the new swing changes her life forever.

    Meet Katy Carr. She's Impulsive, gangly, adventurous, awkward, and brave; she loves clambering over fences, sitting on roofs, making up games, or going for picnics with her five brothers and sisters (much to the horror of her Aunt Izzie). But when she falls from a swing, she suddenly has to cope with being stuck indoors - maybe forever.
