Sweet “just beyond beginning chapters” book about a year in the life of Flora Smallwood. Her dog has died and her parents are taking a breather from their marriage and she’s about to start 4th grade. This book is tailor made for those sensitive kids who don’t want bad things to happen, just like our narrator. Cynthia Rylant certainly hasn’t lost her touch for creating memorable characters — and the bookstore is called A Wing and a Chair! This is one to savor.
