A Corner of the Universe

This is an okay book written by Ann Martin. 11-year-old Hattieā€™s parents own a boarding house with eccentric tenants that have lived there for years. One woman demands the same breakfast be brought to her room every morning before she will get dressed. Hattie learns that she has a half-uncle that is only 10 years older than her. He has mental problems and has been living at a special school in another state to receive care. When the school is shut down he is brought back to live with his parents. His behavior is very childlike, but he befriends Hattie. He is attracted to a woman who already has a boyfriend and it eventually leads him into trouble.
