This is a YA novel set in the South.  Sadie has to spend the summer living at her grand parents' along with several of her aunts and uncles who still live at home.  Her aunt is just a year older than her and they form a friendship along with the wife of one of her uncles. 

But at the heart of the novel is her grandmother, a stern taskmaster who is very hard on Sadie.  Sadie is twelve and experiencing all the changes grils go through at that age.  She deals with them in a very mature but believable manner.

I liked the book and loved Sadie but it seemed like I kept waiting for something big to happen and it never did.  I know that's more like real life but....

I think I may have liked this one a bit more than you although I have to agree - nothing really happens. Sometimes that's the beauty of a book for me though.
