Synopsis:'School has started, and secrets and adventures await Binny and her family.
Binny’s blissful summer is over and school is beginning. And it’s horrible. From the awful secondhand uniforms to the stuck-up kids, who call her a “grockle,” Binny hates everything about school and the kids who torment her.
When a storm damages the roof of their home, Binny and her family must move to a rental home out in the country. Binny, her sensible older sister Clem, and her rambunctious brother James (and his chickens) begin adjusting to a new household. Then one of James’s beloved chickens vanishes. What kind of creature is lurking in the undergrowth? And does it need Binny’s protection?’
This brilliantly written novel interweaves the adventurers of Binny and her siblings with three others from the past, 1913. Binny is surprised by the similarities and connections to the past occupants of the house.
While I loved reading about the children from the past and wondering what happened to them, I was also engrossed in the mystery surrounding Binny in the present. Interspersed throughout the novel is the presence of animals from butterflies to ‘jagulars’, from real to imaginary, for all animal lovers.
A humourous novel with laugh out loud moments followed by heart wrenching moments. This novel is a roller coaster ride for your emotions.
