But alas, she was not.
This, however, does not stop our young heroine from finding romance wherever she can conjure it up. So while Polly is burdened with a summer job of delivering baked goods from her parents bakery (how quaint!) to the people in her small beach town, she finds a way to force…um…encourage romance to blossom. She is determined to bring lovers, young and old, together…whether they want to be or not.”
Needless to say her plans go incredibly awry, yet Polly simply will not give up her pre– mediated fairy tale ending. I found myself relating to Polly as the hopeless and dramatic romantic pre-teen who sees the world through rose colored glasses. Readers will laugh at all the quirky things Polly does and says as well as the messes she gets into. Scones and Sensibility is a super read for middle grades and moms alike! I gave it four stars and let me say this…don’t read it while hungry, there’s lots of talk of bakery goodies 🙂
