Everything on a Waffle
Her parents have disappeared after a bad storm, and while Primrose knows they will be back, plenty of people in town have opinions about what is best for her.
Like several award-winning books, this one features a young character interacting with quirky adults and reflecting about serious issues from a child's point of view. However, Primrose isn't navigating waters quite as grim as those in some other titles. I think the writing itself is more enjoyable than the actual story. As an extra bonus, the book contains recipes for food mentioned in the book, and the recipes are written in Primrose's voice.
"The only really interesting thing about someone that makes you want to explore them further is their heart, and she has a teeny tiny pea-sized one that takes you nowhere you want to go."
