It’s 2012 and Melissa Rue Barrett — from the novel “Glass On A Stick” — is all of 7 years old. Ever since she’s been very little, people have called her Missy, and that’s just fine with her. She likes that name so much that she even named her bear after herself, which can be confusing if you forget to add the Bear’s last name when talking about Missy Bear.
Missy’s an imaginative child who lives life at breakneck speed because that’s the best way to experience as much of the world all at one shot as possible.
She loves her 13-year-old brother, Josh, and her 18-year-old brother, Aaron, even though they don’t always agree with her point of view. But you know, if everyone always agreed with everyone else, life wouldn’t be quite as exciting.
Whenever you need a bit of optimism injected into your life or an interesting perspective on everyday subjects, the amazing adventures of Missy Barrett will surely give you a moment or two to pause and consider her take on life.
