Rate this:
Binny's life has been difficult since her father died and her dreadful old Aunt Violet disposed of her beloved dog, Max. Her world changed then, to a city flat with not enough space for her Mum, her big sister Clem and her small brother James. Definitely no room for a pet.
Then one day Aunt Violet dies, leaving a small cottage in Cornwall to Binny and her family. Binny finds herself in a new world once more, full of sunshine and freedom and Gareth, the enemy-next-door and the ideal companion for dangerous dares. But Max is still lost in the past, and it seems impossible that she'll ever find him again...

I love Hilary McKay's books sooooo much, and this is just as great as all of her others. It's filled with memorable characters and her trademark laugh-out-loud humor, and when I turned the last page I immediately wanted to read the whole thing over again. Fortunately for all of us, there's a sequel! Here's hoping there are many more Binny books to come.

I love Hilary McKay's characters and story lines. I feel privileged to be invited into their homes and share their stories.
