100 Books in 2013: Grounded

Book 4:  Grounded by Kate Klise

The only reason that Daralyn is still alive is because she was grounded the day her father, brother, and sister went up in their dad's plane and then crashed and died.  Her mother is angry at everyone, her grandmother is reverting to childlike behavior, her aunt continues to be dramatic and showy, and her uncle has moved in next door, eyeing her mother.  But it's the arrival of a stranger in town and his enthusiasm to bring the town new services that brings everyone together, even when Daralyn figures out that something fishy is happening in her town.  I enjoyed this coming of age quick read.
