Kaline Klattermaster's Tree House

Kaline Klattermaster's Tree House by Haven Kimmel
Third-grader Kaline's father has gone somewhere and his mother can't seem to keep everything straight, but the two brothers and one hundred dogs that live in his imaginary tree house--and his strange neighbor Mr. Osiris Putnaminski--help him cope with his father's absence, his mother's forgetfulness, and the bullies that torment him in school. Here's a quote, page 132, "Here's all I can say, small buddy," Steve said, patting Kaline on the back. "Be kind to everyone you can be, and be patient. Everyone is doing the best they can. And remember that not one single day has ever been like the day before it, so there's not a chance in this world tomorrow is going to look like today."
