This story begins with Louisiana and her Grandmother driving away from their home in Florida up to Georgia. Things go from bad to worse although it seems like Loiusiana is used to chaos.
The only other book I’ve read written by this author is Because of Winn Dixie, and if you enjoyed that book, this has the same slow, southern feel to it.
Kate’s books show the best and worst of the people in our world in the most realistic ways. I love stories that teach kids that terrible things can happen and that people not only survive them but flourish.
A lot is going on in the plot, and I hesitate to book report this review because it really needs the unfolding of actually reading it. I loved it.
I can say that this story had a happy ending and made me want to bake cakes. How’s that for a recommendation?
