August 2021 Book of the Month

Annie feels the odd one out in her family of three. Creative and accident-prone she’s different to her so-practical dad and brother.  She misses her mum, who left when Annie was very young, and feels somehow responsible. In fact, Annie feels guilt for lots of things and is convinced that she was born unlucky. It takes practically her whole town to get her to think again, but chiefly it’s Gloria, the gorgeously forthright elderly lady Annie finds herself caring for over a summer that brings all sorts of changes. From the author of the excellent Caterpillar Summer, this is another heart-warming, unusual story of self-discovery, distinguished by McDunn’s writing and the character of her earnest, sensitive young protagonist. The relationship between Gloria and Anne is particularly finely drawn, while readers will also warm to Gloria’s aesthetically challenged dog, Otto.
