Review: Petal's Problems by Lauren Baratz-Logstead is a magnificent story in which eight sisters travel to France. It is the 6th book in the Sisters 8 series. It is a humorous and exciting story about Petal getting all worked up about it being her month and discovering her gift or power.
Eight sisters (Annie, Durinda, Georgia, Jackie, Marcia, Petal, Rebecca, and Zinna) get an invitation to go to a wedding in France. But, Petal would rather May never end because as June approaches she gets closer and closer to her month! But, time goes on and June arrives sending the eight sisters on an exciting adventure to France, even though Annie doesn't want to go. France is filled with adventure, suspense, fights, and Petal's murmuring strange words. Will she find her gift or power? Will Petal ever calm down? Find out in Petal's Problems.
Petal's Problems is an amazing book. The writing created a scene in my head so that I could always picture what was happening. It's also fun to imagine the sisters interacting. It is both humorous and exciting. I have never read a book from the Sisters 8 series, but that's not essential to understanding the plot. I would love to meet the author myself and ask her how she was inspired to write this series.
