What is the book about?
This book is about three best friends with completely contradicting personalities(one carefree, one perfectionist and one generous) coming home to Darlington Orchard-their hometown. Murphy is forced to face the …. she ditched, Leeda is burdened with an inheritance and Birdie learns what she should let go and hold onto. Despite the obstacles the three protagonists face, their friendship keeps them standing strong.
Why my friends should read it?
I think this book is heart-warming and has also been highly recommended. For example, the School library Journal felt it was a story that truly stands on its own. My friends will be able to relate with respective characters based on their personalities. For instance, if you’re a perfectionist, you can relate with Leeda.
