About the Novel: (novel sold separately)
Ramona is a typical eight year old girl, but growing up is not easy! For example, it became fashionable in school for children to hit a hard egg against their head before eating it. Unfortunately for Ramona, she accidentally ends up with a raw egg all over her head. This is not your favorite day! She also has to deal with the challenges of being with a four-year-old girl after school, the moods of her older sister, her father's resignation from work to study full-time, the family car that breaks down, and economic problems of your family. At the end of this entertaining story, Ramona has accepted some things and is a little more mature.
