Daralynn Dolly Oakland gets a job along with her mother at a funeral home. But Dolly''s real work begins when a crematorium comes to town, and someone has to save a dying business, solve a burning mystery, and resuscitate the broken hearts in Digginsville, Missouri.
From the Publisher:

After her brother, sister, and father die in a plane crash, Daralynn Oakland receives 237 dolls from well-wishers, resulting in her nickname: Dolly. But dolls are little comfort to a twelve-year-old girl whose world is rocked by the dramatic changes in her life, including her angry, grieving mother’s new job as a hairstylist at the local funeral home. 

Dolly gets a job, too, where she accidentally invents a fashionable new haircut. But her real work begins when a crematorium comes to town, and someone has to save a dying business, solve a burning mystery, and resuscitate the broken hearts in Digginsville, Missouri, population 402.

Annotation:
Both humorous and devastating, this middle grade novel set in the 1970s follows a family reduced to just two people, 12-year-old Daralynn and her tough-talking mother, after a plane crash kills her father and siblings. Had Daralynn not been grounded, she would have been on the plane, too. Forced to find a job, Daralynn's mother styles hair at the local funeral parlor, and the two desperately try to push away their pain. Daralynn's mother becomes sought after for her hairstyling, and Daralynn comes up with a popular new concept of living funerals. But when a conman named Clem Monroe comes to town and starts selling crematorium plots, things go array. Mystery, wit, and a family struggling to return to normalcy create a compelling story.
