Synopsis:  Return to Harlem’s “wildly entertaining” family in this funny, heartwarming sequel. When catastrophe strikes their beloved upstairs neighbors, the Vanderbeeker children set out to build the best, most magical healing garden in Harlem—in spite of a locked fence, thistles and trash, and the conflicting plans of a wealthy real estate developer.

While Isa is off at sleepaway orchestra camp, Jessie, Oliver, Hyacinth, and Laney are stuck at home in the brownstone with nothing to do but get on one another’s nerves. But when catastrophe strikes their beloved upstairs neighbor, their sleepy summer transforms in an instant as the Vanderbeeker children band together to do what they do best: make a plan. They will create the most magical healing garden in all of Harlem.

In this companion to The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street, experience the warmth of a family and their community as they work together to bring a little more beauty and kindness to the world, one thwarted plan at a time.

My Review: I can’t get enough of the Vanderbeekers!

What a wonderful novel following the the first book in the series, The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street! Which if you haven’t read I highly, highly recommend. 

This series has become an instant classic, and is sure to be loved by all ages. 

It gave me all the good feelings of family, and adventures.

It kept me engaged the whole way through!

In this novel the Vanderbeekers are on a mission to create the most beautiful garden, and surprise some very close family friends.

But it’s not as simple as it sounds, and soon they realize how many challenges they have to overcome in order to make their garden a reality.

The story is touching, and sweet with amazing characters that you can’t help fall in love with and want to know more about.

Follow the Vanderbeekers on their journey and meet some wonderful characters on the way.
