I find my heart must belong to any book that contains lines like this: "Jane had occasionally tried to develop her own hidden depths, but she never could decide what to hide and how far down." ( )

Jeanne Birdsall proves that great contemporary fiction doesn't have to be overly angsty. The Penderwick sisters are back for another summer adventure, this time on the coast of Maine, and Skye tries her hand (somewhat unwillingly) at being the OAP. Birdsall's subtle humor and wonderful characters make this contemporary story as timeless as [b:Little Women|1934|Little Women (Little Women, #1)|Louisa May Alcott|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1309282614s/1934.jpg|3244642].

Third Penderwicks book, in which they go off to Maine without Rosalind. But Jeffrey is there, and it’s actually his story that really takes center stage. I appreciated the way Birdsall worked with what could have been a difficult storyline. [Nov. 2011] ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375858512, Hardcover)

When summer comes around, it's off to the beach for Rosalind . . . and off to Maine with Aunt Claire for the rest of the Penderwick girls, as well as their old friend, Jeffrey.

That leaves Skye as OAP (oldest available Penderwick)—a terrifying notion for all, but for Skye especially. Things look good as they settle into their cozy cottage, with a rocky shore, enthusiastic seagulls, a just-right corner store, and a charming next-door neighbor.  But can Skye hold it together long enough to figure out Rosalind's directions about not letting Batty explode?  Will Jane's Love Survey come to a tragic conclusion after she meets the alluring Dominic? Is Batty—contrary to all accepted wisdom—the only Penderwick capable of carrying a tune?  And will Jeffrey be able to keep peace between the girls . . . these girls who are his second, and most heartfelt, family?

It's a rollicking ride as the Penderwicks continue their unforgettable adventures in a story filled with laughs and joyful tears!
