Book: The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street
Author: Karina Yan Glaser
This is my 85th read for the year
This is the story of the 5 Vanderbeeker children. They live in a cozy Brownstone in New York, and it has been home for their whole lives. One day their parents got a notice from the landlord - who lives on the top floor - that their lease will not be renewed and they need to be out right after Christmas. The whole family is distraut and the children make it their mission to convince the landlord they should be allowed to stay. Things go from bad to worse in their efforts, and just when all hope seems lost, the children discover a secret about the landlord that changes everything.
This is a cute book. I don't know how it ended up in my Scribd library, but decided to check it out and I am glad I did. IT is a late elementary/early middle school grade book (and it shows), but it was fun and light. There is a whole series so if you have kids around the 3rd-7th grade level, I would recommend this for them.
