Finding true friendship is sometimes all we need to discover who we really are.
Cornelia & the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters by Lesley Blume
Most consider it good fortune to be the daughter of someone famous. For eleven-year old Cornelia the reality is absentee parents and a quirky personality. Seeking solace in a dictionary, the isolation makes her reclusive. This is the world of Cornelia, and eleven year old in New York City, until the mysterious, elderly Virginia Somerset moves in next door with her servant Patel and her french bulldog, Mr. Kinyatta. As Virginia shares the stories of her worldly travels with Cornelia a mutual friendship develops. Cornelia learns more about Virginia, and herself, with each story. But as they spend more time together Cornelia realizes that Virginia’s stories are her legacy, and she is running out of time to gift them to Cornelia. MR/4-6
