Frannie and Tru by Karen Hattrup
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Great sense of place and characters, but somehow it still didn't work: the characters were a bit stock (well drawn stock, but stock just the same). Frannie's summer growth didn't really seem to change her, nor did it confirm who she already she was, it just happened while she rather passively let it happen - and that's tricky when she spends so much of the book trying to make things happen or being angry! It's difficult for me to put my finger on the exact thing that was wrong, I just wasn't wowed by this one.
