Book Review: {Peaches}

Peaches by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Synopsis: Peaches, a young adult novel written by Jodi Anderson, is a refreshing new story about friendship, relationships, hard work, and loss. Three girls who have nothing in common find themselves stuck together for the summer, working on a peach orchard in the hot Georgia sun. Birdie, whose whole world is turning upside down, finds herself pining for a boy named Enrico almost as much as she pines for girl scout cookies. Leeda, Birdie's cousin, is at the orchard in order to avoid her family and spent more time with her boyfriend, Rex. Murphy is a rebel, sentenced to work in the orchard, who is also enjoying Rex' company. When these girls' worlds collide, interesting antics ensue and the girls learn the true meaning of friendship.

My review: This book was slow to start, but I found that these girls were genuine - they had both virtues and flaws, making them very realistic. They each make mistakes, learning and growing. There's a bit of romance along the way, but the story really focuses on the tests of friendship and the growth of the girls. It's a wonderful book for teens, and a nice, light beach read.

My rating: 3/5
