The Exiles at Home

by Hilary McKay

Grade: Good
Story: The girls have to find ingenious ways to get money so they can pay for the schooling of an African boy. And other random stuff happens.
Previous book in the series: The Exiles.
Next book in the series: The Exiles in Love.

She's lovely. So easy to read, and so amusing. The "Story" section might seem boring here, but really, it isn't. These books are just totally not about the plot.

I think Rachel is my favourite of the girls. She eccentric in a bit of a different way than McKay's girls are usually eccentric. However, it feels a bit weird to say anything general about "McKay's girls", because they really are quite themselves and no one else.
