Addy's Summer Place (American Girls Collection)
Synopses & Reviews
Addy's Summer Place brings Addy to Cape Island, New Jersey — and the brink of adolescence. In her new dress and spiral curls, Addy tries to please Momma and act like a young lady. But when she encounters a poor white girl who acts hatefully toward her, Addy learns that growing older means more than social graces and spiral curls — it also means making difficult choices and finding her own place in the world around her.
After reading the story, girls can read about Cape Island (now known as "Cape May") in 1864 and make homemade vanilla ice cream much like the ice cream Addy enjoyed at the fancy island guest house.
