Blooming at the Texas Sunrise Motel by Kimberly Willis Holt
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Another entry in the "quirky homelife" and "crusty-old-man-isn't-really-crusty" genres (they don't always overlap but often, they do). Stevie's coming to grips with her changed life and figuring out how to live with her grandfather - never a previous part of her life - while also grieving her lost parents isn't easy. It is, however, predictable. If only authors would be brave enough to do something a little different... but that's just me.
