Milo: Sticky Notes and Brain Freeze - by Alan Silberberg
Kind of a graphic novel, kind of a chapter book, this is a well-told story with pictures that help the plot move along. Milo is a likable dork, and his friends are a hoot, but his family will get you down. Young readers will have no problem identifying with Milo's situation, even if they've never been in a similar spot themselves.
This book will make you laugh, and it may make you cry. If you've lost a loved one, this is a good book for you to read, but it's also a good choice for anyone who likes zany school novels with funny characters and interesting plot twists.
