bookshelves: historical-fiction, grades-5-6
Read in August, 2007

When Tiger Ann's grandmother dies she must decide weather she is going to go live with her Aunt Dorrie Kay in the city or continue to live with her mentally-challenged parents. Holt's first offering is a bit uneven in composition, but has proved it's staying power over the years nonetheless. More powerful books with similar subjects have come out in recent years- So B. It by Sarah Weeks and My Corner of the Universe by Ann M. Martin. A good suggestion for kids who have liked those two books but may not be familiar with Holt.
Note: A young(er) Michael Cera plays Tiger Ann's friend Jessie in the movie adaptation of this story.
