Confessions of April Grace: Chocolate-Covered Baloney by K.D. McCrite is the third book in a series featuring a 12-year-old girl April Grace as the main character. In this book, April Grace is tired of change, but more of it comes her and her family's way starting with her finding her sister Myra Sue being sneaky. Throughout the book April Grace deals with a variety of issues including learning more about her mama's past and the love/hate relationship that can exist between siblings.
Overall Confessions of April Grace: Chocolate-Covered Baloney is a great read for pre-teens and teens, especially for those going through their own tough times. In particular, it is interesting how it provides a very real seeming voice with the thoughts of the main character coming through even when she says what is appropriate and not what she is thinking. Since it is set in the 1980s, it can also be an interesting read for parents to read and/or discuss with their child, as it helps show how some issues are timeless.
