DANDELION SUMMER by Lisa Wingate, (c) 2011. This heartwarming family mystery is about an elderly man named J. Norman Alvord and the friendship he has with a rather neglected teenager named Epiphany Jones who is hired to cook and clean for him a few nights a week after school. At first they don’t get along well, but as time goes on they become friends and help each other out with their various problems. I found the writing style very enjoyable and hope you will also. I look forward to reading more of Lisa Wingate’s books in the future.
