Jaclyn Moriarty's Feeling Sorry for Celia
As usual, when I am feeling down and can't seem to get into any of the books I try to start, the Ashbury/Brookfield books are completely satisfying and wonderful. I don't know why these books soothe my soul but I find them so enjoyable, funny, and kind-spirited. I love the two girls at the heart of this book, the letters they write each other, and their growing friendship. It's all just NICE.
