Question: Young adult book--can't think of the title!?
I read a book when I was younger, and I can't for the life of me remember what it is!.

The main character was a teenager!. Her father and brother had died in a car accident, and she kept some of their things in a falling apart box in her closet!. Her mother was an alcoholic, and there's mention of her buying smaller booze bottles to try and fool the daughter into thinking she doesn't drink as much as she does, but the daughter knows better!.

I want to say that she makes an unusual friend towards the end of the book, but I am not totally sure about that!. I also think the girl's name is Claudia, but again, not totally sure!.

If anyone can help me find out what this book is, I WOULD LOVE YOU FOREVER!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

"For a Good Time, Don't Call Claudia" by Paul Pitts
"A little overweight, clumsy and not very popularthose are the lesser worries of Claudia's ninth grade existence!. And she's receiving obscene phone calls each night, a fact she hides from her mother!. Of a more serious nature is the fact that her mother still mourns the deaths of her husband and son two years earlier, and she drinks a lot!. Claudia muddles through, finding a job at a pet store and bringing home both a ferret and Mike, the owner of the pet store!. He's a recovering alcoholic who wants to help Claudia's mother!."Www@QuestionHome@Com
