Life as it Goes is a humorous, wholesome, and fun novel about a not-so-typical family that is suddenly forced to move to a new city. The book is told from the perspective of the youngest child, Sherry Jo. She is a spunky third grader who loves life, her family, friends and basketball. Billy, the middle child, is extremely mischievous and is often causing some type of trouble. Sam is the oldest and very mature for his age. He is also a great athlete. The three kids are less than thrilled about moving away from their familiar surroundings and friends. They soon, however, adjust to their new home and find many new opportunities to get into trouble. It is hard to resist each zany adventure that this family experiences: a skunk gets loose in the car, Billy breaks his arm and saws his own cast off, Billy and Sherry Jo set the driveway on fire, the dad lets a watermelon rot in the car, causing an enormous stink, and many more exciting adventures.
