The author has developed this series beautifully. I found this book an equally emotional read. She has discussed a lot of sensitive topics which many adults fail to handle properly.
The journals of her mom Queenie were a really big deal for Ginnie but the author managed to turn them into a support and help for the family. The father Todd also finds that the journals brought a lot of emotion and drama for his family but in the end it all works out.
I found the novel very fast paced and it kept my attention glued. I can just imagine how interested the children will be in the adventures of Ginnie, Tillie and Toran. The adventures and the uncertainty of whether their parents will get together and the amazing proposal along with the big surprise at the end all add up to a wonderful read.
Monique has the amazing knack of writing about the most difficult situations and making it a breeze; maybe it is her experience with her children! She simplifies the situation and defuses the anger and tension making no one regrets their words and actions.
She has tackled a good issue of step-children and step-parents; how it is not easy for any party even when they are willing to get together. This is a good series for both children and parent to find out about life and learning to handle the challenges life throws at them!
Emotional and fun; I am already excited to read the 4th Book “Being West Is Best!!” and what the finale’ is all about!!
