Review: Squishy Taylor and the Bonus Sisters (Squishy Taylor #1)

Squishy is full of Chutzpah and a whole lot of heart but she has a tendency to get herself into all sorts of pickles. She works hard to make things right, but this doesn't always pan out, just like in real life.

In this first book, Squishy is adjusting to life with step-twin sisters, a baby brother a and home in a high-rise building when she discovers someone mysterious in the car park basement.

Would you share your deepest secret with girls you don't know that well, even if they are your new sisters? Or is it better to go it alone? When do you know you can trust someone else?

While still grappling with this life-changing question, the cranky, complaining neighbour goes too far and Squishy decides to do something about it.

The pages flew as I closed my eyes with exasperation when Squishy was going off track.  I often held my breath, hoping Squishy would work through her moments of disaster. One thing is for sure. I can't wait to read each and every book in this fast-paced, funny series.
