The last song
Author

Review
Ronnie is stuck spending her summer with her father in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. She hasn't talked to him in three years and isn't planning on talking to him now. But one incident is all it takes to start talking to him and to begin to get close to him. As she she gets closer to her father she starts to fall in love with Will. She met him on her first day there when he slammed into her causing her to spill her drink on herself. The next time they meet is when she calls the aquarium to help protect an almost exstinct turtle species. Though, her summer wasn't as happy and joyful as it seemed. She had recently met Blaze and started to become friends with her when Marcus, Blaze's boyfriend and the town trouble maker takes a liking to her. Blaze is jealous and causes Ronnie to get her third strike in shoplifting. After that Marcus keeps popping in and spoiling the time she has with Will. But when her father, who she has barely forgiven and become close to, reveals that he has stomach cancer all those things become unimportant. Upset about her father, Ronnie calls it off with Will because after the summer they will go there separate ways and have a long distance relationship. She instantly regrets it but does not do anything about it because of the limited time she has with her father. She uses the connection she had with her father to give him something before he passes away. She fixes the song her father had been writing for the last few days and plays it on the piano for him. Quickly after that her father passes away. At the funeral she reunites with Will.  View at phoenixpubliclibrary.org

The Penderwicks

Review
The Penderwicks is a very good book. It is funny and has memorable, hilarious characters. My favorite character is four year old Elizabeth "Batty" the youngest of the Penderwick sisters. In this book they meet Jeffery a fun-loving boy who becomes an honorary Penderwick. I would recommend this to whoever likes funny books that have some suspense.   View at phoenixpubliclibrary.org
