it was amazing
Read from August 23 to 27, 2011

Somehow this book manages to be EVEN BETTER than the first PENDERWICKS novel. I've already made it clear that my love for book 1 knows no bounds, but I've gotta say: I liked book 2 more.

The Penderwick sisters are back and more endearing than ever. Plus, we've some new characters to fall in love with. Batty remains my favorite, but Tommy comes in at a close second.

And how cool is that the cat's name is Asimov--just like MY dog. Clearly Ms. Birdsall and I think alike. Er...right?

The setting, the mystery, and the hilarity continue in THE PENDERWICKS ON GARDAM STREET. Do NOT miss this one.

Now, I'm off to buy book 3.
