    3. Bertha is really great. She hates dancing and she hates having to lose weight. In this book she does not dance but she attempts to lose weight at weight loss boot camp. But, she does not leave without her stash of candy and her sense of humor. She also learns how to work together with her family when her grandmother gets Alzheimers. This story and the book is dedicated to her mom, Ruth who does have the disease. We can only hope that someday there is a cure.
