As I'm making my way through the books of children's author Sharon Creech, I'm finding that they're hit or miss with me.
Granny Torrelli Makes Soup was better. It was definitely a cute story, about two friends who grow up next door to each other but then as adolescence hits and new neighbors arrive, they find themselves floating apart. It was predictable and unresolved in that way that young adult books sometimes are ("It'll all be OK. Things change, but your family loves you.").
Both books were really short, good for zippy summer night reading.
