Preview of Thimble Summer Summary:

In Thimble Summer Enright projects a deep understanding of the concerns and emotions of young adults. Garnet Linden, her brother Jay, and their friends Citronella Hauser and Eric Swanstrom are complex, engaging characters, and their desire for adventure, their need for security, and their wish to be respected will touch responsive chords in most young readers.

Garnet enjoys living on a farm with her parents and brother, but she is curious about the world outside her small country home, and she longs to venture out on her own, seeking education and excitement. Her adventures in town and her interaction with the other characters in the novel make for an amusing, moving story about growing up.
