J Short Chapter Paulsen

If you are looking for a funny and light book, this is the one. I chuckled throughout. Have you ever had one of "those days" when everything went wrong? Molly's day will make yours seem like nothing.

Molly is a highly organized seventh grader, or at least she was when she had her notebook. The loss of this notebook has caused Molly great stress. Her school is having "Senior Citizen's Day" and Molly's grandmother, Irene, joins her for a day filled with adventure -- or as Molly sees it, utter chaos. Irene is actively involved in Molly's classes and becomes a hit with the students.

Even prior to leaving the house, Molly trips over her grandmother's bag, causing her to get a black eye. Molly had half of her hair braided with the tiny rubber bands that were in someone's mouth during her math test (apparently Molly was very focused on her math test), she even received detention by just sitting next to her grandmother, had her dress ripped in class, got covered with spaghetti sauce and black-blue ink, and more! Somehow, upon reflection, Molly decides that the day turned out to be a really good day.

You will have to read the book to find out why!
