Finished Georgia Rules by Nancy Turner Steveson.
Maggie’s mom and stepfather are getting divorced. That’s hard enough except her mom has decided that they’re going to move to Vermont. Maggie’s biological father (a man who’s essentially a stranger) has died and left her a farm. The plan is to stay there a year and then sell it (that stipulation is in the will), take the money and move anywhere else. Except it doesn’t take long for Maggie to love Vermont and the friends she makes there. She feels closer to her dad there…hopefully she can convince her mom that they need to stay.
This is another fast read, one that I think will make people want to go to Vermont. (In my case, in the summer. The snow would kill me.)
It also works as a reminder that families can comprise people we choose, not just people we’re related to. And I love Maggie’s friends (a giant blended family with siblings) and her new life.
