" Wanted: Older Brother. Good at Math. Wicked on skateboard. Must share TV time ." Robyn is so sick of being an only child, she places a want ad in the local newspaper.
But the only person who replies is her neighbour Ari, and he just wants to avoid his piano lessons. Ari seems like the most boring pretend-brother in the world: they don't skateboard together, they don't watch TV. But he's a natural on the piano, and when he shares his talent with Robyn they find they're better friends than siblings.
Robyn's Want Ad is the story of a girl who longs to have a brother, and who is happy to find a friend.
