Good Graces by Lesley Kagen

I love all of her books – this is a sequel to Whistling in the Dark but you don’t have to read one to appreciate the other. Characters are wise, witty and quirky but absolutely believable. Main character is 10 year old sassy Sally O’Malley. She leads us through her summer – it is a maze of challenges that she faces with wit and aplomb – and she even gets to resolve a few mysteries along the way. Light but not at all flaky!
