The reviews I read about The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown were very mixed. Either the reader loved this book or they hated it. I was one of the people that really enjoyed it. I thought their family was very interesting (the dad speaks in Shakespearean quotes!) and the sisters were great characters (each one was very different). I could actually imagine a family like this one… Sometimes life just does not turn out like you imagined it.
Goodreads describes the book:
There is no problem that a library card can’t solve.
The Andreas family is one of readers. Their father, a renowned Shakespeare professor who speaks almost entirely in verse, has named his three daughters after famous Shakespearean women. When the sisters return to their childhood home, ostensibly to care for their ailing mother, but really to lick their wounds and bury their secrets, they are horrified to find the others there. See, we love each other. We just don’t happen to like each other very much. But the sisters soon discover that everything they’ve been running from-one another, their small hometown, and themselves-might offer more than they ever expected.
