The magic of the Glits by Adler_ C. S_ (Carole S.)
Jeremy summer at Cape Cod-he has a cast on his broken leg and he has to babysit the 7 yo girl-Lynette.
He invents the game, the glitz to keep her busy. They do spend time at the beach, just not near the water because her mother had drowned.
After the cast he picks up hanging out with his male friends playing ball, etc. He brings her with him...
He helps her get over her fears and he needs to have some more responsibility. Her father wants to put her in an orphanage and then she wishes on the glits that she felt.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

Sweet story, beautifully descriptive writing. Lovely black-and-white illustrations by Ati Forberg, especially of the sandpipers on the beach. ( )

First words
"Well, don't expect me to entertain her," Jeremy said immediately.
The wind flicked back her hair, and he was reminded suddenly of how pretty her mother had been, the small, brown-animal look, like a wood thrush or a chipmunk. He had a secret soft spot for the quiet, small, woodsy creatures. (p. 7)
Five sandpipers twiddled along the edge of the surf on straw-stemmed legs.
... the clouds were too mean and the sea was aluminum.
The weather outside matched the day's miseries he decided, half tumbling dark clouds with birds sliding off from under them in all directions and half radiant, sunlit corridors.
