You really can’t go wrong with any of Jessica Day George’s books!
This was a fun continuation of the Tuesdays in the Castle story, which is one of my favorite middle-grade books. However I didn’t like this one quite as much as the first — there was some strange (and at times confusing) history of the Castle brought into play and it ended on a pretty big cliffhanger. But still a fun story that I will gladly share with my kids!
