The story is charming, with the girls playing the alphabet game on the car ride, getting along together, and enjoying nature. The lake house setting is interesting, and the girls talk about a lot of experiences that some readers might not get to experience first hand, like picking apples, sweet potatoes, and pumpkins. Liz has a grown up with her in the kitchen while she is making the pie, and she is generally safe, although she does burn the filling.
Readers who like books with a pleasant ensemble cast, like Meyerhoff’s The Friendship Garden or with a concentration on food like Hiranandani’s Phoebe Green series will enjoying spending a weekend with Liz and her friends, and might even be interested in embracing the lost art of pie making!
