Hmpf! I wanted to love this book with its quirky title and adorable cover.
Things I liked about this book: The narrator was a girl that people underestimated. You get a chance to hear her thoughts.

Things I didn't care for: The main narrator daughter ages and her voice doesn't seem to shift accordingly. Also, even though it is a very personal story about how minute shifts in our lives add up to a big impact it seemed detached in a sad way. I think the story made me feel lonely for the main character.
