Genre: Teen & Young Adult
Prudence Penderhaus, a high school senior recently diagnosed with cancer, uncovers an odd boy and small-town corruption under dreary Pacific Northwest skies in this dark and quirky coming-of-age mystery.
17 Marigold Lane is a unique and heartfelt read. I did not expect this book to affect me the way it did. Prudence is a quirky and a special girl. Her strength and will to do the right thing made this story a standout for me. Following some terrible news, Pru decides to live life. Take some chances. Once chance leads her to Cassius.
This is a new to me author. I appreciated the fact that a character with special needs was represented. The story had a nice flow. Some moments that pulled on my heart strings. Others that had me angry. That all makes for a pretty good story. I hope there’s another book. I would love to read more from Pru and her crew. I give this 4 stars.
