Katy Carr is impulsive, gangly, adventurous, awkward, and brave. She loves clambering over fences, sitting on roofs, making up games, and going for picnics with her five brothers and sisters (much to the horror of her Aunt Izzie). But when she falls from a swing and is paralyzed, she suddenly has to cope with being stuck indoors with her invalid cousin—perhaps forever … Katy is struck by her cousin Helen’s beauty, kindness, and generosity. Determined to be more like Helen, she endures intense emotional and physical pain while learning the virtues of patience and responsibility.   What Katy Did is fresh, lively, funny, and moving—and Katy herself is a warm and loving character that readers have taken into their hearts for over a hundred and thirty years.

Author Bio: Susan Coolidge

Author Bio: Susan Coolidge

Susan Coolidge was the pen name of Sarah Chauncy Woolsey (1835–1905). Born in Ohio, she served as a nurse during the Civil War and after that turned to writing. When her first book, A New Year’s Bargain, was published in 1871, her editor, who was also the editor for Louisa May Alcott, suggested that Susan Coolidge try her hand at the same kind of story as Alcott’s. What followed were five books about the irrepressible Katy Carr and the fortunes and misfortunes of the Carr family, characters based on members of Coolidge’s own family.
