I originally picked this one up to read for inclusion in my booktalks for SRC but didn't include it because I didn't think it had enough pizzaz and the storyline was very narrow in appeal. Eleanor is not happy because the babysitter she has had her whole life is moving to another state. She has to get used to another one before school starts.

It's an okay story, fast read, but I found myself wondering if my 2nd-going-into-3rd grader would "talk" in the same way if he were telling the same kind of story. The character seemed younger than that, maybe more like my K-going-into-1st grader.

I have to disagree with other reviewers; no way would I put this in the same league as Clementine!
