Book Review - The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Mettlestone

The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Mettlestone

About the Book
Bronte Mettlestone is ten years old when her parents are killed by pirates.

This does not bother her particularly: her parents ran away to have adventures when she was a baby. She has been raised by her Aunt Isabelle, with assistance from the Butler, and has spent a pleasant childhood of afternoon teas and riding lessons. Now, however, her parents have left detailed instructions for Bronte in their will. (Instructions that, annoyingly, have been reinforced with faery cross-stitch, which means that if she doesn't complete them, terrible things could happen!) She travels the kingdoms, perfectly alone, delivering gifts to ten other aunts: a farmer aunt who owns an orange orchard, a veterinarian aunt who specializes in dragon care, a pair of aunts who captain a cruise ship, and a former rock star aunt who is now the reigning monarch of a small kingdom.

But as she travels from aunt to aunt, Bronte suspects there might be more to this journey than the simple delivery of treasure.

My Take on the Book
This is a book that was such a quick read! My daughter loved that this was a book with a female heroine. The adventures that Bronte has draws in any age reader. I can say this as I read this with my daughter, and I am glad that I did! There is mystery, fantasy and so much more in this book that it will draw any readers' eye in my opinion. In reading the will of her parents you will find that Bronte is given specific instructions that not only will save her hometown, but also does a lot more for Bronte herself. You get a great story that is interspersed with amazing artwork as well. There is humor too and Bronte is an amazing character that shows bravery, kindness and more, which as a father of girls I want my girls to see for their own lives.
