I automatically have issues with anything clown related. Naturally, many of my co-workers and friends feel obligated to send me any clown related books. This is one of those suggestions.
Delerita is an 8th grader and a loner. She would rather do wood carving and hang out with her uncle Punky, who has Down Syndrome. Then Delerita’s parents are killed in a car accident. Now Aunt Queenie has ideas about how they are going to take care of Punky. Delerita steps up and everyone learns a valuable lesson about family. To be honest, whatever the story, it is the cover art that kills this book.The blank stares are just creepy.
