Clementine and the Family Meeting by Sara Pennypacker

I remember reading the first Clementine book a few years ago and laughing out loud. The series has quickly become a favorite and her fans and new readers will love this addition. Clementine's mom is pregnant, her friend Margaret is obsessed with make-up and the rat being used in her science experiment is missing.  Just how much is a third grade girl supposed to handle?
     Not only does Clementine have an understanding teacher, her parents are amazing.  They know what to say and how to say it and twice I found myself tearing up.  Written so young readers will not only want to read this book they will fall in love with Clementine and her family.  Recommended for those who enjoy Ivy &  Bean, Judy Moody and Kylie Jean and for readers graduating from easy chapter books.  Do you think we will ever find out Clementine's little brother's real name?  Read as an ebook arc courtesy of Disney-Hyperion courtesy of Netgalley.
