Sins of the Sisters..., January 4, 2011
Light, quick read with not much substance. The entire Sullivan family is informed on Christmas Day that they have been cut out of Arden Louisa Norris Sullivan Weems Maguire Hightower Beckendorf's will. Shocked and horrified, the family can't believe what they are hearing. One of them has really done it this time -- and the family knows she is serious. Even though there are 6 children in the family, the book centers on the letters written by the 3 Sullivan sisters who worry that they might have been the one who offended Almighty Lou -- their strong willed grandmother who is the matriarch of a rich and powerful family in Baltimore. She has threatened to disinherit the entire family if the guilty party doesn't appease her with a remorseful confession presented to her before the end of the year.

The three sisters, Norrie, Jane, and Sassy (OK the names got on my nerves) dutifully write their stories for their grandmother detailing the antics and mistakes that might have really been upsetting to Almighty so the book is divided into those three basic parts. I won't detail the stories so there are no spoilers but all I kept thinking was -- which girl is the one who upset her??

The family gathers again on New Year's Day to hear if they are going to get a reprieve. Who was it and what was the crime?

Teens will likely enjoy this funny family tale.
