Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures by Kate DiCamillo
“Kate DiCamillo’s books have a special place in my heart, and this one is no different. Flora’s parents are divorced and Flora lives with her eccentric, romance-writing mother. Flora hates romance. She’d rather be reading comics or ‘Terrible things could happen to you!’ stories. When a squirrel is hurt in a vacuum accident, she cares for him and realizes he has superpowers! A bond between Flora and Ulysses is instantly formed, and their friendship knows no bounds. Overall: sweet, funny, and charming.”
