I'm not one to read such books about "best friends", but when I saw this one I thought I might give it ago, because well...I love peaches.
The book thoroughly surprised me in a good way. I found the plot to be interesting and the characters even more interesting. The book is lovely and at the end it leaves the reader with a happy feeling.
This book was deffinatly a book off of my general genre, but I am delighted that I tried out this new book. I have proudly read all 3 peaches book and I encourage it to people of all ages. It will leave you with a satisfied and delightful feeling.
A light-hearted story about three very different girls learning that they have someone to trust in the world. Becoming the best of friends doesn't come without a grand adventure, including storms, guys, money and most of all peaches.
The thing I liked most about this story was it seemed more real than most coming-of-age stories. Written with detail and emotion this is a must read!
Certainly a juicy novel about three unusual friends working on a small peach farm going bankrupt. Romance for one girl, finding herself for another, and breaking out of her sister's shadow for that last. Great novel, sure to please. Made me crave peaches for weeks!
This book was quite "sweet and delicious." Every time I picked it up I found it hard to put it down. I just kept reading because I was anxious to figure out what was going to happen next with the Darlington Peach Orchard or with all the relationships. The bond that the girls have in this book have changed the way that I view my friends, knowing that I don't know every single thing about them and not to judge them. This was truly a really good book and I would highly recommend it!
I love so many books, and this was one of my favorites. I love how these different girls all bond together, and their dedication to the Peach farm at the end of their stay. It shows that no matter what you look like, their is someone out their that will love you for who you are.
Peaches is a slow but pleasant read. Three very different girls spend their summer together picking peaches at a local orchard. They learn important lessons on life and think a lot about boys. Murphy McGowen is a daring girl with a wild reputation. Leeda Cawley-Smith is the rich, pretty, popular girl that everyone seems to envy. And Birdie is Birdie, sweet and shy. Together they become the best of friends and have a summer to remember.
i like the premise; three girls from different backgrounds bonded over a gruesome summer at a farm.and i also like the way the author jumped from the present to past. that helped explaining the girls background and also stirred some mysteries about their pasts.however, i'm a little disappointed, though. the story could heve been written better.
This book is seriously not what you expect. Three people, not exactly friends, are thrown together in one summer of hope, love, soul, and peaches. They travel through their summer, crossing ties and boundaries. I have to say, it's not all about happily ever afters but more about friendships and out relationships. You could call it another Sisterhood, but I would go THAT far.
