Somewhat conflicted...I thought it was a really good book about dealing with the death of a pet, but I couldn't stand the characters. I probably wouldn't have finished it if it weren't for class. And Declaration was pretty horrible. Maybe she learned her lesson in the end, but some "mistakes" are too much. She can go learn to be a good friend to someone else.

Liked this when it was My Girl. ( )

I loved the writing in this book, but didn't care for all the death. It's one thing to kill off a couple of well-loved elderly relatives, but when the dog's demise became apparent, I quit reading. ( )

Ten-year-old Comfort Snowberger has attended 247 funerals. But that's not surprising, considering that her family runs the town funeral home. And even though Great-uncle Edisto keeled over with a heart attack and Great-great-aunt Florentine dropped dead--just like that--six months later, Comfort knows how to deal with loss, or so she thinks. She's more concerned with avoiding her crazy cousin Peach and trying to figure out why her best friend, Declaration, suddenly won't talk to her. Life is full of surprises. And the biggest one of all is learning what it takes to handle them.

Deborah Wiles has created a unique, funny, and utterly real cast of characters in this heartfelt, and quintessentially Southern coming-of-age novel. Comfort will charm young readers with her wit, her warmth, and her struggles as she learns about life, loss, and ultimately, triumph.

This is a good book for young kids to be introduced to death and all the sadness that comes with it.
Comfort lives in a funeral parlor, so her family's business is death. But death comes to her own family and Comfort has to learn how to come to peace with it.

There was nothing extraordinary about this book. Some parts were actually very cliche. I read it for Battle of the Books. I think it's going to be a snore for the kids. It's a thinky/feely book. There really isn't much plot. ( )

Death is a way of life for the Snowberger family, since they run a funeral parlor out of their Mississippi home with the motto "We live to serve." Still, when 94-year-old Great-great-aunt Florentine Snowberger dies in the vegetable garden, no one can truly be prepared, even though she'd been bidding "good night and good-bye" to the family every night since she turned 90. Florentine's death is hard on 10-year-old Comfort, since the two were so close, even co-writing the Fantastic (and Fun) Funeral Food for Family and Friends. It's no surprise, then, when the annoyingly overwrought emotional displays of her young cousin Peach Shuggars and the sudden iciness of her alleged best friend Declaration Johnson send Comfort over the edge. Thank goodness for her shaggy "feel-good" dog Dismay who can eradicate all bad feelings with a single slobbery lick.
When a dangerous flash flood comes to Snapfinger on the day of Florentine's funeral, Comfort learns again that life is full of surprises, good and bad, and that, ultimately, it's just good to be alive. This warm, witty novel, told in Comfort's voice (and a mix of letters, recipes, articles, and helpful hints), celebrates the joys of family, of prune bread, of freshly sharpened pencils, and of "each little bird that sings."
