After the death of Summer's mom, Summer is passed from family to family until her Aunt May and Uncle Ob decide to take her back with them to West Virginia. When Summer thinks her life is finally getting better, Aunt May dies. (not a spoiler! I promise!) Both Summer and Uncle Ob are having a hard time coping with the death. When things seem like they can get no worse, Cletus Underwood from her seventh grade class gets involved, and Summer doesn't think very highly of him! Cletus ends up helping Summer and Uncle Ob discover a number of things about themselves and life. Cute book. Short, not a very difficult read, and teaches lots of great lessons about recovering from the death of a loved one. Feels like a very natural, very human book. Everyone can relate in some way or another!
