IL 5-8 RL 6.2
Milly lives in a funeral home
with her easy going Uncle Edgar and her stern and strict Aunt Gloria.
After Aunt Gloria dies, Milly still hears her Aunt telling her to "Sit
up straight" and other orders. Milly meets a new girl at a writing
class and finds out about the Weirdness Index. Milly finds out that
you can't judge a book by its cover when she meets some "strange" people
only to find out that they aren't strange at all once she got to know them.
The story is written in journal format and Milly really has a great sense
of humor. Wait until you read about the Halloween party that they
had in the funeral home. You'll never guess who the guest of honor
was! Read THE MILLY STORIES by Janice Lindsay to find out.
