I like a book that tells an interesting tale and manages to fit many issues into the story with minimal effort. On the outside this is a story of a girl whose family moves into an RV and travels from LA to Washington State to help with a sick grandparent, but the layers of interest and complexity add to the interest of the story. An unusual topic for a book aimed at middle-schoolers is the issue of right to die, which Odetta's grandmother chooses when faced with a painful end of life from cancer.
