The O'Malley sisters were developed in "Whistling in the Dark". In "Good Graces", the girls are a year older and just as active and likely to get into mischief. Unfortunately, the story is slow and not developed very well. About half way through, everything just falls apart. Around 300 pages Ms. Kagen seemed to decide the book was long enough, so she stopped. Seriously, she just brought it to an end.

Although Lesley Kagen provides the readers of "Good Graces" the background to her storyline in dibs and dabbles, once all the pieces come together the story provides a most unusual and interesting mystery. Two young sisters, bound by one's death bed promise to her father that she will always take care of her younger sister, and one who blames herself for the Father's death, struggle to grow up and find their way in a family full of secrets with a narcissist for a mother and a neighborhood full of wonderfully unique characters. A cat burglar is on the prowl and things aren't always what they seem. Kagen does an excellent job of tapping into the emotional fragility of these two young girls with very different ways of approaching their delicate trauma filled lives. I hope that Kagen returns to their story in some future books. She makes readers truly care about the sisters, their neighbors and friends, and want to know what their future holds beyond this amazing unforgettable summer. I highly recommend this book to all readers!

Love Kagen books and this book is pretty good so far. Reminds me of growing up back in the 50's and 60's.
A fun read from cover to cover!

Like other reviewers, I loved "Whisting in the Dark," but was disappointed with "Good Graces." It was so repetitive from the first book, beyond what I would expect in a sequel. I still loved the character of Sally, but the plot was too slow and repetitive for my tastes.

I fell in love with these two sisters from WHISTLING IN THE DARK..which is a very funny, good book. I enjoyed reading about these girls again..despite some repetition from the first book. The ending I DID FIND was unrealistic and a real stretch. But I won't give the plot away. Despite its flaws, I totally enjoyed reading it.

Both books, Whistling in the Dark and Good Graces, are excellent reading.
