Grace Above All (Fesler-Lampert Minnesota Heritage) Paperback – August 15, 2015
Thirteen-year-old Grace's summer vacation looks to be boring and difficult. While her mother holes up in their small rental cabin, smoking, sleeping, and reading, Grace serves as caretaker to her siblings. Then, after Grace's little sister floats too far out in the lake on an inflatable raft, handsome Frankie appears to assist, and Grace's summer takes a startling new direction. As in The Summer Sherman Loved Me (2006), St. Anthony effectively explores the netherworld of early adolescent friendship and love. Readers will meet a variety of unusual and lovable characters, including elderly Aunt Hilda, whose body looks like "an upside-down U," and Frankie's grandfather, who courts Hilda and eventually announces the couple's engagement. Each character helps Grace more fully understand her complicated feelings about her family and about romance. Sweet, poignant, and authentic to its 1960s setting, St. Anthony's novel features well-drawn characters of all ages who awaken to love. Bradburn, Frances

She thinks things will change when the family takes a trip to a cabin on the lake for a couple of weeks, hoping that maybe her mom just needs to relax.
WRONG! All of the responsibility falls on Grace, as usual.
She does meet a boy, though, named Frankie. He is very cute and likes her back, but they can never be alone because Grace is always stuck caring for her brothers and sisters.
This is a great book, following The Summer Sherman Loved Me, and I give it 4 stars!
