My favourite character in the book is Brianna because she’s smart and fun. Bree also likes to look for adventures. I think that it would be fun to be friends with Brianna because she likes to ride her bike and climb trees. She’s also not afraid to try new things.
One of my favourite parts in the story is when Brianna and her cousin Sonny go look for an old cemetery on their Grandmother’s big farmland. No body else knows it’s there. Brianna even falls into an old coffin hole.
I like this story because it has a lot of cliffhangers. I also like that Brianna tries really hard to save her family’s farm all by herself and tries to bring her family closer together again. I think that boys and girls who like to go on adventures would like this book. Also people who like to help others.
