Pauline C | 68 comments I have just started reading this for week #18 - a book on a summer / beach reading list. It is on the Women's Day summer reading list for 2016; and is also on the UK's Richard and Judy summer book club list. This book is published in the US as The Girls in the Garden .. I am reading the UK edition.


Pauline C | 68 comments I have just finished this and really enjoyed it. The style of writing was very easy to read, the main characters well drawn and the dialogue very realistic. The book took us into the world of children on the cusp of teenage years, with the mixture of childish thoughts and burgeoning sexual awakening, and the secrets they keep from parents who don't know them as well as they think they do. Recommended.
