it was amazing

Daniel must spend the summer with his aunt Margo and his cousin Bree at his great-aunt Delilah’s mountain home. There he meets some of the most eccentric characters ever encountered, from his newfound friend Kat who is dealing with stepfather number six, to the gallant, but confused Colonel Pepperidge who needs a helping hand with daily living, to his coffee- and wine-loving aunt Margo who is really quite okay for a grownup. Meanwhile his great-aunt Delilah has gone to Ireland in search of her granddaughter, second or third cousin to Daniel, who has been missing for a very long time.

Ten-year-old Daniel is an introspective, likeable boy who is grappling with his parents’ recent falling out. As the summer progresses, so too do his relationships with the characters on the mountain. It is a wonderfully humorous, lighthearted book about life and relationships, including grownups (who have a lot of explaining to do). A great book for middle grade readers and their parents.
