I have recently fallen in love with Mary Hershey's books about the life of Effeline Maloney. The sequel to this book, "10 Good Things That Have Happened Since I Nearly Got Struck By Lightning," features an event in this story, which provided me with a reason to read it.

This story seemed a little bit of an odd-ball, in or out story. I picked it up hoping it would tell me what a realistic big sister would like to younger siblings, (since I myself am an older sister.) However this story taught me no valuable lessons what so ever. It seemed very awkward to be in our library, with all of the "interesting" moments.

This book is great!!!!! Even though I started it today, by the first like 7 pages it is great.
And if you are 12 or so it gives you great tipsto handle little siters. Well if your not intrested you don't have to read this book. But if you are 12 or 11 then you should read this bok.

If you decide to read it I hope you enjoy it like me.

I thought it was going to be a fluff sort of book, but it was anything but. Effie's dad is in prison for a white collar crime, and her big sis has stolen money from the Scout's treasury. This story is well written and a hidden treasure. It's much more than I anticipated.
