Review of In Front of God and Everybody
But how can she just stand there when the man kisses her grandmother in front of God and everybody?
This story was really cute. I surprised myself when I realized I like southern-style novels about young girls (April Grace is eleven). April Grace's voice is clear and charming as she expresses her opinions and interacts with her unique family and guests. And are they unique guests! Remember that Benjamin Franklin quote, "Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days."? Well, try three weeks with the rudest woman in the whole world! I love the way April Grace learns to love in her own, funny way. This really was a sweet, down-to-earth book filled with southern humor.
All in all, I rate this book five out of five stars, and I recommend it to girls from age nine and up.
