Knock About with the Fitzgerald-Trouts - Esta Spalding, Sydney Smith

Another story filled with adventure and mystery, the Fitzgerald-Trouts discover new things about their island home and about themselves, while rising to the challenges that face them together as a family. I found they argued a lot more and brooded over their circumstances which dragged the story down on occasion and Jonny Trout's character really darkened the story for me however, it is jammed packed with the quirkiness that make these children appealing and their commitment to each other admirable encouraging the reader to root for the Fitzgerald-Trouts from beginning to end.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
