I did this wrong, because I should have read Sunny Side Up first, but still, I understood and enjoyed this heart-warming and yet heartbreaking family and friendship-centered graphic novel. I so needed Sunny and her brother to reconcile otherwise my heart would have broken for real.

Follow-up to Sunny Side Up, and again, pretty sunny, mild, sweet stories of a girl in middle school in the seventies. I lived in the seventies, but this wasn't my seventies. References an older sib with substance abuse, separation from a grandparent.

This was the second in a series but the year in the life format here didn't feel cohesive and the plot seemed thin. I enjoyed the many references to 70s culture but I don't expect my children will, and this book is written for their age group. What worked about this story and made it relatable I...

Not as good as the first one, but I like that this sweet graphic novel deals with a difficult topic...having a loved one who struggles with addiction. I think I just missed gramps. More gramps!!!

For fans of the first book (SUNNY SIDE UP), this is a poignant continuation of Sunny's story as her family continues to deal with her brother's issues in the 1970s. This would be a great book for older elementary kids who are dealing with family issues or any kids who like to read realistic graph...

I like all the references (visual and textual) to life in the 1970's. It would be a good challenge for a reader to track everything they learn about that time period. The hard story of Sunny's brother has some positive resolution in this one.

Unlike the first book which was one cohesive story, this series of vignettes felt disjointed. I really can't give it more than 2 stars.
