From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-Fifth-grader Sharon tries desperately to keep her father's temporary unemployment a secret from her friends at school. Her mother starts to sell "Lavender Lady" cosmetics to help make ends meet, and her allowance and dreaded flute lessons are put on hold. With the help of her classroom teacher, the seemingly hard-boiled Mrs. McCracken, the girl realizes that there are others worse off than she is and gains a more mature perspective on her situation. All ends well-her father gets another job, her mother's enterprise takes off, and Sharon becomes a volunteer for Meals on Wheels and decides that she loves to play the flute after all. A burst pipe and a burnt meal end the book on a humorous note and temper the otherwise idyllic conclusion. The characters in this series entry are not deep, the plot is hardly subtle, and the laudable theme of counting one's blessings hits readers in the face. At the same time, however, this is a quick, easy read about a common situation.
