House on Plunkett Street

Details: Phoebe has always been a wall flower.  Her mom was a wall flower, who faded away into a drunkard.  Having tons of older brothers, and a father who were all into every sport known to man, Phoebe didn't fit into her family.  After living a life of being lost among the flow of nothing, its time for a change, and 3 ghosts decide to set her on the straight and narrow.  Will Phoebe find her way?  Will she find love?  Will unexpected tragedy lead to wall flower safety, or will Phoebe find the courage to live life to the fullest?

My Review: I love reading!  I love getting books from authors directly!  I love getting signed books!  My two favorite book shelves are my Signed books, and my Saved books (very old books that I find, rescue, and keep special).  I am happy to say that House on Plunkett Street came to me at the right time in my life.  Things are pretty crazy for me and my family, and the author's message "Live life to the Fullest!" is what I really needed to read, hear, and understand by reading this book right now.  This is very well written, the plot has you intrigued the whole time, wanting to learn more about Phoebe, wanting to learn more about each ghost-ett who comes to visit her.  I love the characters, they all come to life.  Polly and Pam are my favorite characters.  They are so real, so full of energy, and excitement.  This is the perfect pick me up novel.  The perfect, help me without preaching to me book.  The perfect examples of how to live life to the fullest!  And its not like the Christmas story Scrooge. You learn about some of the important history from an era that is almost forgotten in today's society.  You learn about women who knew what being a "real woman" really meant, and how so much has changed.  Chapter four is my favorite chapter, with great advice from ghost number one, she will be nameless in my review because she is very important to the ending of the story.

Pros: great plot, amazingly real and honest characters, I love the lessons and the history

Cons: none
