Tuesdays at the Castle

Tuesdays at the Castle - Jessica Day George The first time I heard about this book I was clicking around on Jessica's blog. Bloomsbury described it as a combination of Home Alone and the Room of Requirement. That's exactly what the castle felt like! When the bad guys showed up, the castle provided everything Celie and her family needed to fight back!There was such a wonderful cast of characters. The villains were villainous, and the heroes were heroic. Although this story is told from Celie's point of view, it isn't just Celie's story. It's the story of how she, her family, and her friends work together to save the castle and the kingdom.The writing was fantastic (as always). The words flowed so clearly and wove together a wonderful adventure that's completely unforgettable.You could definitely tell Tuesdays is aimed at a younger audience, but it's the kind of story that anybody can enjoy. You could be 5 or 19 or 72 or anywhere in between!If I had to come up with one complaint, it would be that I wish it was longer because I wanted to spend more time with all the lovely characters. Luckily, I heard there are 2 more books coming. Until then, I'll just have to wait.
