Not only is this book special to me because Ann M. Martin herself signed it for me at BEA but I really liked it. After devoting 7 straight years to teen fiction, I've been reading children's books again on a regular basis. This book started out as a typical younger/older sister conflict. I loved the younger sister, Pearl, because she was flawed: she didn't always care about getting her homework done and she played minor tricks on her older sister. But what I loved about this book is that it introduced the very real element of a grandparent with Alzheimer's into the story. That made it so touching and smart that I can't wait to recommend it to readers!
