A GOOD BOOK ON A WAFFLE.
Primrose Squarp is an amusing, funny eleven year-old girl who is very lost and unsure of her self after she becomes an orphan. Her parents are lost at sea and everyone thinks they are dead, but Primrose thinks they are still alive stranded or lost on an island somewhere. She waits on the dock every night for them to come back.
Since her parents are lost Primrose goes to live with her Uncle Jack who is in the Navy stationed in Coal Harbor, but he is not the best guardian for her, he is not around a lot so Primrose is often lonely.
Primrose loves the town restaurant, " The girl on the red swing." (That's where they sell everything on a waffle, fish on a waffle even waffles on waffles) She gets along very well with the owner Kate Bowzer, she teachers her how to cook and takes her in and makes her feel well again and befriends her. Although she does like Kate she doesn't care for Miss Honeycut her counselor, she is too caught up in her own world to care about anyone else but herself (which is odd to Primrose because at this time in her life she needs someone to talk to) and her babysitter Miss Perfidy also tends to get on Primrose's nerves.
Over all I enjoyed this book I think in a way it teaches you to be able to handle anything that comes at you and to be strong and patient. I also thought it was enjoyable how they had little recipes throughout the book. It made the book different and unique.
