Good read about a mother/daughter relationship. Some eccentric characters thrown in to make it interesting. Very well-written.
I enjoyed this book. Clara the 11 year old is a character that put a smile on your face AND a wrinkle in you brow with some of the things she comes up with. Sad and heartwarming at the same time. I think a lot of characters can be true to life. Nothing in this book is a stretch of the imagination....unless you count Clara's imagination.
A young girl is struggling to find the truth about her missing father and twin sister. She interviews an older neighbor man for a school project and the invents a history for him. good read.
This is a very touching and wonderfully written story. I loved the main character, Clara, a quirky eleven year old girl searching for answers about her family.
Wonderfully written story of an unusual friendship between a homeless man and a young girl. Good one for a book club. Ours did it and loved it.
This is a brooding story of a young girl who is troubled by her family life and builds a friendship with an elderly man in her town. They share stories and take care of each other. It's a beautiful and sad story.
