Sunny Side Up by Jennifer L. Holm
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Reading the back matter, why Holm set this in the 1970s is clear. But not having read that, people might wonder why this is set then rather than today. After all, there are retirement communities today and families with the same problems today. The pages where we learn what the Bicentennial or a Polaroid was were nice, but felt a little like filler. Beyond that, however, is a book that might help readers who are having similar problems in their families, who might feel similarly confused and abandoned by their parents.
