Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer L. Holm

Reviewed By: S.
This book takes place in 1935. Turtle's mom gets a job as housekeeper for this rich and snobby lady, thus Turtle is forced to go to Key West and stay with relatives she's never known. Then, Turtle finds treasure in her grandmother's termite eaten piano. Her and the Diaper Gang set out to find where the treasure came from. Heads up! People in this book have VERY interesting names and characters.
Why I Picked it Up: The cover looked really pretty and when I read the back cover, I noticed that it took place in 1935 and I don't really read much that takes place in the past.
Why I Finished It: In my opinion, the beginning to halfway in the book was kind of slow and boring, but when Turtle finds the treasure, the story really kicks in.
I’d Give this Book To: People who like to read history in a modern way.
