Another book that makes me wonder who picks the books for Sunshine State list. As an adult, I loved the book, but I've lived some of these experiences. Very definitely see this as a read aloud or read-together. I like Lisa Graff's style. Her book, Something About Georgie, was a 'good read' a few years ago, but both seem like an adult trying to write from a child's point of view on subjects that are difficult for children to have empathy unless the theme is specific to them.
