something interesting

Penny Grey lives a rather privileged though somewhat isolated life in New York City with her parents. One day Penny is feeling rather bored and writes a wish to throw into the fountain in her back yard: 

“I wish something interesting would happen when I least expect it, just like in a book.”

The next thing she knows, her dad has quit his lucrative job and the family is rapidly falling into financial disaster. It’s not exactly what Penny had in mind when she wished for something interesting. When Penny’s mom inherits a crazy house in Tennessee, the family decides to move from the city and get a fresh start in the country.
So begins Penny's interesting adventure.
Penny Dreadful by Laurel Snyder is a great book about friendship, adventure, family, and community.
(and Laurel Snyder wrote Bigger Than a Breadbox too)
