Willa By Heart

I just finished Willa by Heart, by Coleen Murtagh Paratore.

Willa By Heart is the third book in the Wedding Planner's Daughter series.  I highly recommend Coleen's books.  This one is no exception.  I would suggest there is probably little for boys in these books.  The title character is an independent, artistic pre-teen trying to sort out her emotions and her family life.  It is full of frills and girly stuff, though Willa herself is much more grounded.  I particularly enjoy Paratore's character quirks and place descriptions of the Cape.
It is interesting to note the author lists Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott as her favorite childhood book.
Check out Coleen's newest book which premiered Feb 17, 2012.  And check out tomorrow's blog about Little Women.
