This story was funny as the protagonist is so literal and tries to save everyone in her life from themselves. She works at changing her family situation to make it more functional after a few family tragedies, her best friend she finds a challenge in many ways. It is a great story to read to just walk in the shoes of someone who thinks different for a little while.

Reminded me a Little of Morris Gelitzman's works - "Two weeks with the queen", Blabber Mouth and "Belly Flop", among others.
