This was our February tween book club read, and as I have with Julie Murphy’s other books, I loved it. Our main character Sweet Pea finds herself in the middle of her parents’ divorce and rocky friendships when she is asked to aid Miss Flora Mae with her advice column. All Miss Flora Mae needs is for Sweet Pea to mail the letters she receives to her sister’s house in Florida, but when Sweet Pea finds herself getting curious, she becomes involved in a whole new way. This was your classic sweet J read. If a parent were wanting to read alongside their child, this would be a wonderful pick that would sparks some great conversations. Many of our tweens find characters or experiences that they connected to in this book, so I think this could be utilized as a classroom read as well. If you have read Julie Murphy’s Dumplin, this takes place in the same world. Julie also disclosed with us that she is working on the screenplay for this movie to be made into a Disney Channel movie, so get excited
