Short but sweet

Okay ladies and gentlemen, live with me for a moment. I have a review but I have to keep it very short and sweet due to the fact that I should be studying for one of the biggest tests of my life lol.

The Vinegar Girl

By Anne Tyler

Kate Battista feels stuck. How did she end up running house and home for her eccentric scientist father and uppity, pretty younger sister Bunny? Plus, she’s always in trouble at work – her pre-school charges adore her, but their parents don’t always appreciate her unusual opinions and forthright manner.

Dr. Battista has other problems. After years out in the academic wilderness, he is on the verge of a breakthrough. His research could help millions. There’s only one problem: his brilliant young lab assistant, Pyotr, is about to be deported. And without Pyotr, all would be lost.

When Dr. Battista cooks up an outrageous plan that will enable Pyotr to stay in the country, he’s relying – as usual – on Kate to help him. Kate is furious: this time he’s really asking too much. But will she be able to resist the two men’s touchingly ludicrous campaign to bring her around?

I read so many good things about this book and I was NOT disappointed!Tyler’s story only vaguely resembles Shakespeare’s and that is just fine with me. I fell in love with Pyodr and all of the Battista family, aunts and uncles included. She put so much feeling into writing this book and I am so glad I can add this to my collection of books!
