Call Me Sunflower by Miriam Spitzer Franklin

Thanks to #kidlitexchange for the review copy of this book. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟Call Me Sunflower by Miriam Spitzer Franklin. Sunflower is an eleven year old girl struggling with middle school issues. She hates her name and prefers to be called Sunny. Her mother has chosen to pursue her Masters Degree and moved the girls away from their Dad, in New Jersey, into their Grandmothers house in South Carolina. Sunny is in a new school with new people and knows no one. She needs to come up with a plan to get her parents back together and return to New Jersey. She sends her Mom to a make over and photo shoot in an attempt to put her parents back together. Sunny is very strong willed and independent. She is angry and lashes out at people around her. But she soon realizes that her life before now will not be as she dreamed and the bonds of family and friends is stronger than the distance between them. I particularly enjoyed that Odessey of the Mind was included in this read. All of my children participated in this extracurricular activity and it is way under rated so I was excited to see it mentioned in a book! Review also posted on Instagram @jasonnstacie, Library Thing, Go Read, Goodreads/StacieBoren, and Amazon.
