Sunny Side Up by Jennifer Holm (author of BabyMouse books!)

Book description from Lewin has been packed off to Florida to live with her grandfather for the summer.  At first she thought Florida might be fun -- it is  the home of Disney World, after all.  But the place where Gramps lives is no amusement park.  It’s full of . . . old people.  Really old people.  Luckily, Sunny isn’t the only kid around.  She meets Buzz, a boy who is completely obsessed with comic books, and soon they’re having adventures of their own: facing off against golfball-eating alligators, runaway cats, and mysteriously disappearing neighbors.  But the question remains -- why is Sunny down in Florida in the first place?  The answer lies in a family secret that won’t be secret to Sunny much longer. 

My 25 cents....If you enjoyed Smile! or Sisters or Drama--you will more than like enjoy this book too.
It's a graphic novel (like a comic book) so it is a really quick read! The story is sweet, as Sunny is devastated that she has to spend time with her grandpa down in Florida where it's all "old people".  She discovers though, that it's not all that bad when she makes a friend her age that is also there.
