Love, Ruby Lavender is a great book because Ruby Lavender is such an entertaining character. She is best friends with her grandmother, keeps chickens as pets, and lives in the small town of Halleluia, Mississippi. When her grandmother leaves for Hawaii to visit Ruby’s uncle, Ruby is left with nothing to do all summer; at least, that’s what Ruby thinks. Instead Ruby’s summer is filled with unexpected events, an amateur anthropologist, and an unfortunate incident involving a lot of blue paint. I recommend this book to anyone who likes quirky characters and good entertainment.
Frog Kisser gives this book five stars.
