Book Review: Vardin Village

Vardin Village by Maggie Spence: Sixteen-year-old, George Vardin, lives in a crappy, ramshackle cottage with no electricity and a roof that’s about to implode. The creaky front porch overlooks the magnificent ancestral mansion that his father lost because of his drug abuse. George is not sure which is more breathtaking; the view or the irony.

George’s life is about to suck even more because school starts next week and he can’t scrape up enough money to pay his cell phone bill let alone the fee to play varsity football. Uncle Morris shows up and offers a creative solution to keep George and his sister together under one roof. It’s a much larger, less leaky roof, with a breathtaking view of the crappy, ramshackle cottage. Crafty Morris reveals a secret tunnel that leads to the mansion and consequently some Vardin family secrets that will make junior year unforgettable.

Toni's thoughts: I really truly liked this story. I think the author did a wonderful job writing this story and it definitely doesn't follow the norm of what I usually read but its worth your time. The whole story progressed very nicely and there weren't any dull moments that I could remember. This would be a great read for when your laying in a hammock on a nice fall day. There was a bit of mystery and clues mixed with family and a bit of romance. I just really liked the book and would suggest it to anyone young and old.
