Editorial Reviews

Jeanne Triner
Sixteen-year-old Abbey is still recovering from her father's death when her 13-year-old cousin Katherine comes from Paris to visit for the summer. Katherine is pretty, 20sophisticated, and quite a bit wilder than Abbey. It takes Abbey a 20while to realize that her cousin is also a scared little girl who has been abandoned by her mother and longs to be part of the somewhat flaky and unusually loving family Abbey has taken for granted. As she helps Katherine out of various scrapes and learns to accept her mother's impending remarriage, Abbey develops into a responsible, resourceful young woman. The dialogue, especially the humor, is a bit forced, and the madcap tone and lack of reflection are unbelievable for a family that has lost its father only eight months earlier. Many of the characters lack development and serve primarily as comedic vehicles. Nevertheless, the book has a Cleary or Lowry feel to it, and readers will identify with, and share in, Abbey's adventures. A crisply paced light read that should work especially well with junior-high-age reluctant readers.
