Pru(Prudence)Penderhause is a neat girl. She doesn't think so herself, and neither does her peers. She has a couple friends, but besides that and a loving mother that's it. I think she is awesome and reminds me of me.
The poor girl gets bad news and decides to live her life to the fullest. In doing that she meets a peculiar boy named cass(Cassius)Shooster. He is also a neat fella and I love him!
Both of their lives are thrown into a storm and they need each other to come out okay.
I've never read a book that has these types of characters at the fore front. Characters in any other books that would be in the spotlight. Was very refreshing!
Can't wait for book two!!
I would have liked to have a few more threads tied up in the end, but they were clearly left loose to set up the next book in the series.
You will adore and despise Gilmore's incredibly vivid and well written kooky characters. Some are utterly kick-ass and cool as hell. Others....well let's just say a punch in the gut and a kick down the stairs won't sate your desire for revenge by the time you reach the story's end. There is a beautiful diversity to her characters as well. Gilmore doesn't shy away from autism, teenage awkwardness, alcoholism, or even cancer. She has bold character style, and you'll absolutely dig it.
17 Marigold Lane has a much darker plot than I had anticipated. Its heavy subject matter is intriguing and enthralling, without being too depressing. It's a mystery thriller that is equal parts morose and funny; an odd combination, much like the main characters Pru and Cassius. R.M. Gilmore brilliantly laces their dialogue with bits of pop-culture quotes that will certainly be appreciated by any self respecting weirdo. I found the quotes and bits of geekdom totally endearing and also a source of comfort. Make no mistake: this is a somber tale, and you'll appreciate the humor when your heart is breaking.
This is a book written for weirdos, about weirdos. Adorable, quirky, lovable, star-crossed weirdos. Read it and revel in its weirdness.
I didn't know what to really expect with this book you have Prudence who is dying decides to do one thing that sets everything into motion.
On her street there is a house that everyone calls the spook house you all know people have stories about houses and what are in them. Well Prudence decides to knock on the door one day and when it opens it takes her by surprise it seems there is a young man living there who we learn is named Cassius. There is more to Cassius than meets the eye and Prudence is determined to make him her friend. She wants to show him how the world is and that he doesn't have to hide inside, but it seems as though there is a reason behind it all. What will Prudence uncover while trying to "rescue" Cassius?
Cassius was a character who I felt for all over. To be treated the way he was in his home and outside of it broke my heart. I liked how the author brought in a touchy subject to some people and that being Asperger's. Not a lot of people know what it is and the author does mention it within the book. It just goes to show you that people who have Asperger's can be normal people with just a few ticks you just have to treat them that way.
It seems the town has a secret and there are some who want to keep what is found hidden.
Now when we meet Prudence at first she seems to be just a young woman who is shy and rather stay to herself but as we read on we see her open up more and become more vocal when she doesn't like the way things go or how people are treated. One in particular Cassius. I liked that about her she didn't back down or give up no matter what was thrown in her path. The way she treated Cassius was perfect. She had patience with him she didn't judge him. It was nice to have a character show compassion towards someone who may seem different to others.
Now it seemed that it is always raining in their town that I am surprised it has not become a flood how in the heck does it rain that much haha. Had to bring this up as I don't think it was ever sunny.
I was very impressed with this book as I said at the beginning I had no clue what to expect. Was it a mystery? Was it about a young girl and boy falling in love? Is it about death? It had the right amount of everything to make it a good story to read in one sitting. I do hope there is more coming on Marigold Lane.
