This book was a sweet Middle Grade book about life and death and all of the issues in between. Odette is taken out of her happy place when her parents decide to sell everything that makes their life comfortable to buy a motor home. They then decide to travel cross country to visit Odette’s dying grandmother. It’s a lovely book about a special family. Nothing seems to work for Odette as she learns how to deal with a puppy that’s not the one she wants, sharing one cell phone and an autistic annoying brother.
