I really enjoyed listening to this on cd because the plot was interesting and the characters seemed real. They had problems I could relate to as well as problems I couldn't, but we're still gripping. There was a nice little romance, things about sports, and the twists and turns of living on a dairy farm. Overall, a great listen and I would definatly listen to it again.
This book is really well written, in a way that keeps it interesting and isn't too preachy. The author is able to connect to the reader just like the teens that contributed. The comics and humorous stories were a nice touch and I loved the mission statement part. I will definitely be re-reading this in future years.
This is an amazing book about a girl living in India and the problems she faces. Rosalind loves India, but is sometimes disgusted at the mistreatment of people there. When a close friend tells Rosalind a baby was sold to a man who would hurt him, she goes to the dangerous place and buys the baby for herself. She begins to love the baby when her parents find out. They are so angry they make her go to the club everyday, which means hanging out with girls she doesn't like. Eventually, Rosalind is sent to England to attend school and live with her two aunts. The trip there is filled with sickness and worrying. Once in England many things are discovered including secrets between the aunts and about Rosalind's brother who passed away mysteriously in England. I loved this book because it was well written and had good plot twists. Try it for yourself!
The Penderwicks at Point Mouette is a heartwarming and well written story. Rosalind is given a break from being OAP (Oldest Available Penderwick) when she goes on vacation with a friend. This gives Skye the responsibilities of being the OAP, though she isn't sure if she can bear it. But before she knows it the sisters, minus Rosalind, are off with Aunt Claire to Point Mouette. The place Jane thinks is the perfect setting for an aspiring writer, Skye thinks is perfect for disaster, and Batty misses Rosalind. The plot is well balanced with bad things and good. I once again enjoyed reading about the wonderful Jeffrey and his unknown history. Through heartbreak and injuries, the Penderwicks continue to triumph.
