Absolutely Normal Chaos

Sharon Creech

“Intriguing plot, unique characters—I love the way the author puts in the twisted ending, because it makes you want to read on to find out what the big secret is. Mary Lou and her family are beginning summer vacation, and it gets a little more out of the ordinary when Carl Ray, her cousin, comes to live with them. Nobody knows why and he doesn’t say much. It’s unanticipated when Carl Ray receives an abundance of money. Over the summer Carl Ray learns to trust Mary Lou, and he tells her a big secret of his. It’s shocking for everyone, and you can’t stop reading it.” —an enthusiastic reader like you
