The Summer Invitation

The Summer InvitationWritten by Charlotte Silver

The Summer Invitation is a delightful read told from the 14 year old sister’s point of view. Franny and her 17 year old sister, Valentine, are invited to spend the summer in New York City by their free spirited aunt Theo. Aunt Theo is not coming to join them until August, so she has arranged for a chaperone, Clover, to be with them for the summer. Mostly they are on their own to explore and to fall in love with New York City. What they learn is how to live with class and see the world with new eyes. A very rare book fit for all High School readers.
