Publication: December 21, 2011
Publisher: Tribute Books
Stand Alone Novel
Young Adult
Genre: Historical Fiction
Historical fiction novel set in the Bronx in the mid-1960s
Take a seven day journey with the five, newly orphaned Peach kids, as they begin their struggle to remain a family while planning their dad's funeral.
They find an ally in the local parish priest, Father Tim Sullivan, who tries his best to guide them through the strange, unchartered and turbulent waters of "grown-up world." A story that is sad, funny, and inspiring as it shows how the power of family love and faith can overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
*Copy provided from publisher for Blog Tour and an honest review*

When reading the title for this novel you'd think it be flooded with religious jibberjabber but really its a pretty minute amount, it doesn't overflow but gives a good amount to satisfy the story line and the characters.

The character development within the story was great, i loved the Peaches each and every one of them even through the constant loss of family member after family member. The fact that all this misery happens to the family gives a sense of longing for things to get better because you feel for them. Mr. Peterson does a fabulous job for creating such realistic characters for the time period. the language was also very engaging, minimal bad language and funny moments that gave fillful chuckles.

I do reccomend this book for those who are looking for light humor and characters that touch your heart.
