"Mandie and The Midnight Journey" by Lois Gladys Leppard

About this book:

  “Mandie has mixed feelings when she returns home from boarding school to find a new baby brother. Her mother seems to be so wrapped up in the new baby that Mandie allows herself to wonder if her mother doesn't love her anymore. Feeling sorry for herself, Mandie packs her few belongings to leave, despite her Uncle Ned's advice.”

Series: Book #13 in “Mandie” series. (To read the reviews of the previous books in this series, click the number to be taken to that review:

My personal Rating-
Mandie is not my favorite character in this book, to be very honest. She’s better by the end, thankfully, but it’s cringe-worthy to read Mandie being all jealous of her little brother and so unlike herself. I do have to say though, the next books coming up (the Europe ones) are more of my favorites in this series. ;)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
