I absolutely LOVED this book!! It was so good! It was an easy book to read yet it was very descriptive and very easy to understand. This book made me laugh and it even made me cry in some parts! (which for me is very hard to do) And most important it was very educational. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone from an Italian family, and even if you are not Italian, I think you would still LOVE this book like I did.

There are many positives about this book. There were likable characters in the story such as Frankie and Uncle Dominic. Frankie was mischievous with a good sense of humor and a fun personality. Uncle Dominic treated Penny as if she were his own daughter. He made sure that Penny was happy. Also, the setting was in the 1950s and the author was very descriptive about this time period. "Penny from Heaven" was an easy to understand novel that many 12 year-olds would enjoy. However, this book requires patience because it did not grab the reader's attention right away. The story moved slowly. There were small things that happened to Penny but the ending was the most exciting.

I would recommend this novel because it was interesting in some areas and it was easy to read and understand. This book is a Newbury Honor book which is a high award for children's books. The characters are funny and lovable and there is a happy ending. Most readers will like this book.
