Cherie Reads


Peaches - Jodi Lynn Anderson A sweet coming of age story about three teenaged girls. It deals with friendship and loyalty and learning who you want to be. The three main characters each have unique voices and I loved them all. The real strength of this book is in its descriptions. Ms. Anderson has such a way with words that you feel like you're right there in the orchard surrounded by the trees and the thick smell of ripe peaches on a sweltering summer day. Although not quite as good as Tiger Lily, this was still an entertaining read that will immerse you in its setting.
