A little Odd, but good overall

Reader reviewed by Kyra

Primrose lost her mother and father in a terrible storm at sea. Now, she is being watched by a babysitter (yes, she is being paid by the hour through the old bank account) until her parents come back. It has been a while, and no one thinks they will ever come back, they all think the parents have died, but Primrose keeps up hope. She goes to live with her Uncle Jack, hoping that someday her parents will return.

I liked this book, but what I didn't like is that Primrose kept losing toes and I think a bit of a finger. That just grossed me out. But I did like the ending, and I liked the lady at the restaurant who puts "Everything on a waffle" Primrose constantly brings the restaurant lady her problems, and they just seem to be heartwarmingly close. 

But out of all the characters, Unlce Jack was my favorite. He was just such a personality trip. He had such character, and he was so funny. 

 So I would recommend reading this book. Sure, you may forget about it later, but its a nice one to have said you read.
