Penelope

23rd October 2006

Flora lives with her aunt, uncle and cousins, has a best friend named Piloo, and is haunted by strange memories of a girl named Penelope. Although Flora tries to escape the memories, they continue to haunt her. Flora’s aunt and her friend Piloo become convinced that Flora’s memories are a result of her being reincarnated. Now Flora must decide if she should try to supress the memories, or use them to learn about herself.

Admittedly, this sounds like a weird book, but I really enjoyed it. The mysteries of Flora’s past are intriguing, as is her developing friendship with Piloo, and the sibling rivalry that she experiences with her cousins. Although I don’t believe in reincarnation, it makes for a good supernatural tale.
