Do you remember the days when cell phones and computers had no part in your day. If you want to talk to someone, you had to stand near the phone, hopefully not get too tangled in the cord, and call them. Sometimes, you would even get a busy signal. That sound is a sound of an era gone by. In some ways it was a simpler time. Google was not the answer to curious questions. However, even in those years, children had problems and concerns. Families had baggage. That is what Chocolate Covered Baloney: Confessions of April Grace is all about.
April Grace is a child of the late 80’s. She has an annoying sister who seems to be hiding things, a best friend with her own set of problems, and parents and grandparents that don’t always seem to understand. Yet, she learns that through all the difficulties she faces, she can depend on her family to be there for her. Even the members of her family that seem to be so annoying really care about her.
I found this book to be interesting. I was a child about the same time as this book is set. The book is full of sayings that I grew up hearing. However, it is relevant to today’s children as well because it deals with the issues that children deal with in any era.
