    Give it a try, if you have the time.
    Such a funny and sweet story of four sisters on their summer vacation. It's not a drop everything but definitely a good read.

    I loved this book. I would recommend it to anyone who likes realistic fiction. It was amazing because it was very captivating and well written. It is about four sisters that live with their father and their dog, because their mother died of cancer four years before the first book takes place, right after the youngest sister was born. They live in Cameron, Massachusetts, but take a vacation up to the Berkshire Mountains over summer vacation. They stay in a cottage in Arundel, a large mansion with beautiful gardens. There they meet a boy, with whom they share many adventures, and the boy's wretched mother, who can't remember their names, but hates them.
