When Eleanor "Groovy" Robinson's father is arrested and put in jail, her plans for cooking school are put on hold. Her best friend's mother reappears after a mysterious absence and both children learn about family and the power of forgiveness.
Sometimes students have to live with big disappointments caused by their own parents. I found this book realistic and relatable for ages 10-13.
