If you enjoyed Umbrella Summer, you should try this book. Deborah Wiles develops great, quirky characters in this book set in Mississippi. The main character's name is Comfort. Comfort's family runs a funeral home and Comfort seems to be very good at dealing with death and grief. But of course, every book has a problem, and Comfort gets hit with a few big ones in this book. I can guarantee that you'll fall in love with her and her dog Dismay. Give it a read, and let me know what you think.
