Growing up in the country is never easy, but it sure is interesting! Especially when your sister thinks she's glamorous, your grandma just discovered make-up, your hippie friends don't shower, and your new neighbors from the city are constantly testing your patience.

In spite of all the loony characters in her life, April Grace is able to learn from her parents as they share the love of God-to even the craziest of characters!

Publisher's Description

If God wanted April Grace to be kind to her neighbors, He should have made them nicer!

Growing up in the country is never easy, but it sure is funny—especially if you happen to have a sister obsessed with being glamorous, a grandma just discovering make-up, hippie friends who never shower, and brand new neighbors from the city who test everyone’s patience. From disastrous dye jobs to forced apologies and elderly date tagalongs, you’ll laugh ‘til you cry as you read the Confessions of April Grace!

Here are just a couple of April's thoughts: On her sister, Myra Sue: "How anyone can be that dumb and still be able to eat with a fork is beyond me."  On senior citizen lovebirds: "What if they started smooching right at the table in front of God and everybody?"

In spite of all the loony characters in her life, April Grace is able to learn from her parents as they share the love of God—to even the craziest of characters!

Author Bio

KD McCrite grew up on an Ozark Mountain farm along an old dirt road, just like April Grace Reilly in the Confessions of April Grace series. She loves writing stories that make people laugh and think. For a while, she worked as a librarian, but these days she sits at her desk and makes up stories.

Publisher's Weekly

In McCrite's first novel, which launches the Confessions of April Grace series, eccentric characters, both human and animal, make appearances at 11-year-old narrator April Grace's farmhouse and neighborhood in the Ozarks. Some come for pop-in visits, others for extended stays, but all are subject to the scrutiny of the ever-observant April Grace. With parents who strive to live by St. Francis of Assisi's prayer ("Lord, make me an instrument of your peace"); an older sister who loves fashion, fancy cars, and soap operas; a grandmother ready to start dating again; and farm work morning to night, April Grace cannot believe her parents' decision to host, indefinitely, the obnoxious new California-bred neighbors whose crumbling house is unsafe for human habitation. With keen eyes and good humor, April Grace notes the quirks, presumptions, and motivations of family and neighbors; she has plenty of fodder--the characters' personalities are dialed up to 11. While trying to follow her parents' good example, April Grace's instincts alert her to foul play regarding her grandmother's beau, and she turns detective, adding a satisfying mystery element to McCrite's entertaining debut. Ages 9–12. (May) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
