Review: Fair Weather by Richard Peck

Synopsis: Thirteen-year-old Rosie Beckett has never strayed further from her family's farm than a horse can pull a cart. Then a letter from her Aunt Euterpe arrives, and everything changes. It's 1893, the year of the World's Columbian Exposition-the "wonder of the age"-a.k.a. the Chicago World's Fair. Aunt Euterpe is inviting the Becketts to come for a visit and go to the fair. (from the back of the book)

Review: As with all the other Peck books I’ve read, I enjoyed this one immensely. Peck’s way of writing is phenomenal. His characters feel real, their adventures and drama believable and his ending always satisfying. I highly recommend this – and all – of his books.
