BOOK NAME: Cornelia and the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters
AUTHOR: Lesley M.M. Blume
I just finished a book called Cornelia and the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters. Yeah, I know; it’s a long title!
This book is about a girl named Cornelia, whose mom is a professional pianist, and is always away at concerts. With Lucy (Cornelia’s mom) away at concerts all the time, Cornelia never gets to spend time with Lucy. I would hate to have a mom like that.
One day Cornelia walks by a door in her apartment, and there is a sign on the door that says, Chien Bizarre. What does that mean? Cornelia asks herself. Eventually she meets the people who live next door. The people who live next door are a woman and a man. They are not married but only friends. The woman has a lot of stories to tell Cornelia. Cornelia visits her neighbor a lot just to hear the stories, and she thinks that the woman is very interesting. I think that the reason Cornelia visits her neighbors so much is to get her mind off her mother.
One day Cornelia comes over to her neighbor’s house and finds her typing away on a typewriter. Her neighbor is writing a book. She won’t tell Cornelia what it is about though! Cornelia finds out what the book is, so if you want to know I think you should read the book!
I liked this book because one chapter is about Cornelia, and the next one is one of her neighbor’s stories, and so on through the book. These stories are very interesting and fun. I do admit that in the beginning of the book I did get bored. Once she meets her neighbors it gets very interesting, so I do recommend it.
