The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters by Elisabeth Robinson
On the last Saturday morning of the summer - the morning of my daugther's 10th birthday - I began reading The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters. This novel is the last library book I save from the pile before I return the other books I won't be getting to this summer. I think I save it for the cover. It shows a little girl with a magic wand and I want to use it to erase the reality of the coming school year. It is the story of a young film maker who is called back to Ohio from Los Angelos to be with her sister while she suffers from leukemia.
