Julia’s Review: Ms. Rapscott’s Girls

Ms Rapscott

Every year, I forget how busy summers are at the library.  Julia wrote enough reviews to keep the blog going; but I neglected to post them.  Here’s a book both Julia and I enjoyed. . .   Ms. Rapscott’s Girls by Elise Primavera.

Three words:  cute, funny, unusual (in a good way)
Favorite character:  Fay. She was very sweet to take care of Dahlia’s lamb. I also liked Bea’s spunk, and it was funny that she always yelled.
Favorite part:  When they all arrived, because the hullabaloo was very funny, especially when they were assigned to beds.
How it made me feel:  I was worried for Dahlia because she was lost, but it was all okay and mostly I was laughing.

Synopsis from Penguin website.  “Nestled inside a lighthouse, Great Rapscott School for the Daughters of Busy Parents takes its motto from Amelia Earhart: Adventure is worthwhile in itself. Headmistress Ms. Rapscott couldn’t agree more, but her students, who are shipped to the school in boxes, could use a little convincing. Still, despite their initial reluctance, the students are soon soaring through the sky and getting lost on purpose. In addition to learning what birthday cakes are and how best to approach a bumbershoot tree, the students also manage to learn a little something about strength and bravery.”
