Our Snowman Had Olive Eyes by Charlotte Herman

Author, Charlotte Herman, is probably better known for her novel My Chocolate Year, but this little book is very endearing and examines a young girl's relationship with her grandmother. The book tells the story of a girl called Sheila, whose elderly maternal-grandmother, Bubbie, comes to live with her family and share her room. The grandmother has a heart condition and the girl's mother wants to keep her quiet and fairly inactive, but the girl sees how unhappy this makes her grandmother. The book also looks at the on Sheila’s relationship with her older sister, Muriel (whose diary she regularly dips into)
