Guest Review: The Penderwicks, by Jeanne Birdsall
*This review is by my friend Juyoun.*
For a long time after that summer, the four Penderwick sisters still talked of Arundel. Fate drove us there, Jane would say. No, it was the greedy landlord who sold our vacation house on Cape Cod, someone else would say, probably Skye.
Do you want a fun summer read? Well here is a book that might be perfect for you. It's an exciting story full of wit and a great book for all ages. The book The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, And a Very Interesting Boy by Jeanne Birdsall is a story about four charming sisters, each with a unique personality. When you read this book there is a special feeling of laughter and joy. Its is a story so sweet and exciting you will surely find it fun to read. It takes place in a "cottage" in a village called Arundel and is truly a lovely book. Jeanne Birdsall wrote the story in a summer full of adventures and curiosity. Each sister has a personality that you surely find one sister that fits your taste. Birdsall describes the book with lots of details and it truly is a must-read! It is one of my all time favorites! And don't forget The Penderwicks: On Gardam Street the sequel! I rate this 5 stars and I absolutely loved it and I hope you guys do too!
