"My favorite quote from this book was 'Can I stay here?' because it shows that Mary Alice isn't afraid of Grandma anymore. When I started this book, I thought I'd like it because it was similar to another book that I had read and liked.

The main character is named Mary Alice. Her dad had just lost his job and she was going to live with her grandma. She just wants to have a fun time there. She does have fun and ends up wanting to stay permanently.

I'd give this book a 5 out of 5 because it was well-written and funny. What I liked most was probably the part when I was almost Halloween."
