In front of God and Everybody: Confessions of April Grace by KD McCrite
April Grace is 12 years old living in the country in the year 1986. She has a funny sister who is obsessed with looking good all the time and a grandma who just got a new boyfriend. There are also some hippie neighbors who never shower and on top of that snooty new neighbors, who are always insulting the family.A funny read about what it's like to live in the country in 1986 through April's eyes.
This was a good read. All of the stuff that happens, it was hilarious to see. It kind of reminded me of Trixie Beldon, and what farm life is like but of course Trixie Beldon grew up awhile before April, but the same farm type of life. The moms cooking also reminded me of my mothers, she always makes everything covered in fat. I also thought the new neighbors were about as rude as can be. Overall a good read 3/5
