What I Call Life

When Cal Lavender's mother has an "unfortunate episode" at the library, Cal is taken to a group care home run by a strange old woman called "The Knitting Lady." Cal is clear that this is not her real life, just a temporary detour. But even detours can take you where you need to be. A charming, funny, and insightful first novel.

Audible Editor Reviews

The innocence and naiveté of the impressionable 11-year-old Cal, the protagonist of Jill Wolfson’s shimmering coming-of-age story who's taken away from her ill mother, is expertly conveyed by Full Cast Audio’s Grace Kelly, who’s plaintive yet evocative voice manages to capture Cal’s pre-adolescent confusion but eventual self-acceptance as she finds herself at Pumpkin House, a group home run by the sagacious Knitting Lady and inhabited by four other girls who overcome their differences form an unlikely but inseparable bond.

Publisher's Summary

When Cal Lavender's mother has an "unfortunate episode" at the library, Cal is taken to a group care home run by a strange old woman called "The Knitting Lady." Cal is clear that this is not her real life, just a temporary detour. But even detours can take you where you need to be. A charming, funny, and insightful first novel.
