Liffey Rivers and the Mystery of the Sparkling Solo Dress Crown by Brenna Briggs
Food to eat while reading: Pre-feis Spaghetti and Meatballs (come back tomorrow for the Tasty Tuesday recipe)
What I liked:
Liffey is a spunky, quirky girl who dreams of qualifying for a solo dress and eats spaghetti and meatballs the night before every competition. Because of her overbearing personality, no one, including the reader, can anticipate what she will do next.
The author pulls the reader into two new worlds that they may never otherwise explore. The first is the world of Irish dance. Second, she gives us a feel for the city of St. Louis, Missouri.
