free read Penny from Heaven 106 characters ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Jennifer L. Holm When being Italian meant that you were the enemy But most of all it’s a story about families about the things that tear them apart and bring them together And Holm tells it with all the richness and the layers the love and the laughter of a Sunday dinner at Nonny’s So pull up a chair and enjoy the feast Buon appeti From BooklistGr 5 8 Penny lives with her plain old American mother and grandparents but she has an open invitation to visit her deceased father s Italian family where the delicious aromas are as inviting as the boisterous relatives who welcome her Against the backdrop of these contrasting 1950s households the author of Newbery Honor Book Our Only May Amelia 1999 charts the summer of Penny s twelfth birthday marked by hapless episodes as well as serious tensions arising from the estranged families refusal to discuss her father s death Penny is a low key character often taking a backseat role in escapades with high spirited cousin Frankie However Holm impressively wraps pathos with comedy in this coming of age story populated by a cast of vivid characters a burping farting grandpa an eccentric uncle who lives in his car not exactly normal for people in New Jersey Concluding with a photo illustrated endnote explaining Holm s inspirations in family history this languidly paced novel will appeal most to readers who appreciate gentle episodic tales with a nostalgic flavor Hand selling may be necessary to overcome the staid jacket illustration Jennifer MattsonCopyright American Library AssociationI really enjoyed this book for a number of reasons The characters were strong and well defined I really associated with Penny through her struggles with her family and the differences between the two The relationship between Penny and her cousin Frankie was awesome What I really enjoyed about this book and the whole genre of historical fiction is the ability to teach about history through fiction If I wasn t in this class I would probably enjoy reading this story simply for the story of Penny and her family The storyline and characters are strong enough to support a story However what I will walk away with after reading this book is the knowledge about how Italians were treated at this time in history I had no idea Curfews internment camps This was a great story but an even better history lesson
