Sunny Side Up

Sunny Side UpSunny Side Up
by Jennifer L. Holm
Grades 4-7

In the summer of 1976, Sunny is sent to her grandfather’s retirement community in Florida. It is clear from the start that she expected a very different sort vacation — she’s the only kid around, the sofa bed squeaks, and her grandfather’s idea of fun is nothing like hers. As she learns to navigate Pine Palms, we also see flashbacks as to what happened at home earlier in the summer that lead to this trip. Her new friend Buzz introduces her to the world of comic books and super heroes as she works through her emotions about family loyalty and keeping secrets. Recommended for fans of Sisters and other realistic graphic novels, grades 4-7.
