Family Tree Book 4: Home Is the Place

We rated this book:


This book starts out on Georgia’s sixth birthday. She wants to be independent in her life in the city, but her mother won’t even let her go next door by herself. The chapters change as Georgia grows older. She moves into a beach home and meets lots of new friends. Georgia also discovers her great-great-grandmother’s journals and realizes how upsetting her great-great-grandmother’s life must have been. She doesn’t share this with her great-grandmother, though, because she doesn’t want her to be sad about her mother’s life.

It was fun to read how Georgia grew with every chapter, and to read about her finding out about her ancestry and how she is like her great-grandmother. She got along with everybody, but occasionally had a few fights with her mother. This is the fourth book, and Georgia is the fourth generation. This book talks mostly about Georgia’s growing up and different exciting events that happened in her life, but it also talks about her ancestors. You don’t have to have read the other books to understand and like this one, but this makes me want to go read the first books to see what life was like for the rest of Georgia’s family.
