Ginny Rose and Peggy were the best of friends when they were younger, and now that Ginny Rose’s family has moved back, they are determined to pick back up. However, Peggy has a new best friend, Lisette, and Lisette and Ginny Rose are at odds. Not only is the matter of their dear friend to contend with, but all three girls are from different socioeconomic backgrounds. Each family has its own issues to address, and all three girls will force their family’s fissure to crack as they grow.
Wendelin Van Draanen’s The Peach Rebellion is a sweet coming of age story, feminism, and standing up for one’s self. Despite the disparities in a post depression US, the three girls will journey together to find a new future for them all, changing the lives of those around them. While the book starts out slowly, the story picks up speed as it drives to the end.
