[Potential spoilers ahead]
This book, Summer of the Gypsy Moths by Sara Pennypacker, is about a girl named Stella who has been sent to her great-aunt’s house in Cape Cod for the summer. The only problem that concerns Stella is that there’s this foster kid named Angel who’s staying with them for a while. Angel isn’t exactly friendly with Stella, until the great-aunt dies. Stella and Angel didn’t know what to do until the great-aunt’s gardener arrived. They were both scared that they’d lose the nearby cottages that they found out Stella’s great-aunt ran, and now they either have to make up lies to her gardener, or tell the truth and get sent away. Not only that, but they were both concerned they would have to leave behind what they had started, now they have to finish it: together. How will this tragic story end? You’ll have to find out by reading the book.
I would rate this book three stars because it didn’t really have a lot of excitement, it was pretty much the same type of routine until the very end.
