|Plot Summary of The Baby Project|
|"Eleven year old Jessica and her teenage brother Simon are shocked when their engineer mother and stay-at-home dad tell them that they are expecting another baby. As the family prepares for the baby, Jessica and her best friend Margaret begin a “baby project” for school. The project is detailed and fun and once the baby arrives, things just get better. Baby Lucie quickly becomes the heart of the family, and is even affectionately treated by often surly Simon. Unfortunately, when the baby dies suddenly as a result of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) the family is devastated. Originally entitled “The Family Project”, this story is primarily about a girl and her family coming to terms with their grief while attempting to hold their lives together. "
