Ten-year-old Comfort Snowberger has attended 247 funerals--her family owns the local funeral home, after all. And even though Great-uncle Edisto keeled over with a heart attack and Great-great-aunt Florentine dropped dead--just like that--six months later, Comfort knows how to deal with loss, or so she thinks. She's more concerned with avoiding her crazy cousin Peach and trying to figure out why her best friend, Declaration, suddenly won't talk to her. But life is full of surprises. And the biggest one of all is learning what it takes to handle them. In this heartfelt and quintessentially Southern coming-of-age novel, Comfort will charm young readers with her wit, her warmth, and her struggles as she learns about life, loss, and ultimately, triumph. Includes reader's guide and a biography of the author.

I bought one of Deborah Wiles books off of a clearance table several years ago. I just loved it and bought more from Overstock. These books are not only entertaining for children, and they have lessons in solving problems, but they are a pleasant read for adults. Wiles has a good sense of humor. Not only did I buy these books for me, but I sent them to my Mom who is going to give them to a little neighbor girl when she finishes. Wiles books are under both Deborah and Debbie. I would recommend them to anyone. I plan to buy more as Christmas presents.
