The writing is very good and the words and thoughts that flowed from the pen of author Lisa Schroeder made you feel that she was able to truly understand the minds of young ladies. The tight bond of friendship between Isabel and her best bud, Sophie, was perfect, and their personalities played off each other as fresh and natural as they were meant to be.
But two points within the story struck me as really not fitting in and which I would have preferred that they had been taken into another direction. The first and the greater of the two was the underlying current of depression and/or paralyzing fear/pessimism that Isabel's mother seemed to be fighting throughout most of the story. I felt that an otherwise great storyline had been overshadowed by the fact that a young girl had to grow up and mature faster than she needed because of her feeling of needing to mentally care for her mother. It was a bit like mom and daughter changing roles. Perhaps in another book which focused on the subject of this sort, this would have been an appropriate storyline. But for what I thought was a lighthearted and innocent adventure for young Isabel, it turned into more angst in both her trying to work towards her dream yet having to become way too grown up in thought and action, by way of being her mothers caretaker of sorts.Read more ›
The book is full of great, quirky and engaging characters. Isabel, the main character, is a wistful girl who wishes to travel the world and feels stuck in her little hometown. Her mother is a woman with some anxiety issues. Flighty, yet fun, Isabel spends alot of her time catering to her mothers whims. Her dad, who reminded me alot of my own, is one of those men who have to always be working hard, time off is spent finding something else to work on, yet still finds time to be there for his daughter. Sophie, Isabel's best friend, is one of those girls who is charismatic and always seems to get whatever it is that she wants, but is loyal and friendly too. Her grandmother is a sweet, classy lady who is always there to give Isabel a kind word, a hug, and encouragment when she needs it. Plus, the new quirky, charming neighbors that only add to this books great line-up.
It's a great book that is written for middle school aged kids. Isabel learns that it's not all about where you want to go, but who you are with and how much you enjoy where you are. Alot of fun and with all the mention of yummy cupcakes I have a craving to make some cupcakes of my own :-)
