Eleven-year-old Cornelia is the daughter of two world-famous pianists—a legacy that should feel fabulous, but instead feels just plain lonely. She surrounds herself with dictionaries and other books to isolate herself from the outside world. But when a glamorous neighbor named Virginia Somerset moves next door with her servant Patel and a mischievous French bulldog named Mister Kinyatta, Cornelia discovers that the world is a much more exciting place than she had originally thought.

An unforgettable story of friendship and adventure that takes readers around the world and back again, Cornelia and the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters is a dazzling first novel by Lesley M. M. Blume.

In Cornelia and the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters, Lesley Blume does an amazing job. Cornelias father and mother is famous pianist. Her only friend is Madam Desjardins who is her maid. Till one day Cornelia noticed that a new neighbor moved in. So one day she decides to greet them. Then she met Virginia. Virginia understands what Cornelia is going through because her parents were famous too. But Virginia tells Cornelia stories about when she was a kid. Cornelia enjoys them so she comes over everyday. Till her mom comes over to meet Virginia and Cornelia got really upset and talked to Virginia about her feelings.
I really enjoyed this book and I recommend this book to people who are at least in 5th grade because the reading level is 5.5. I would have to say that many stories inside of this story are what make this book good. Cornelia and the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters. Is like the story The Most Dangerous Game. They both have stories inside of the story.
I know that most people, who have read this book, would recommend it to people who like stories that have mini stories inside of a story. People recommend this book and so do I.
