The Book of Essie was a great story (even if it was a bit predictable). I liked the characters (Roarke was my favorite!) and the plot definitely keeps moving – there isn’t a slow moment in this book.
I did think that Essie and Roarke seemed a bit too mature for their age, but I also might be too far removed from 17 to remember what I was really like and how mature (or not) my peers were.
Overall it’s an easy, quick read and is perfect for anyone who ever followed that super large, religious TV family. You know who I mean.
