All three girls, Birdie, Leeda and Murphy come back to Georgia for the summer. Leeda has had her first year at columbia and Murphy went to school in New York too, while Birdie was in Mexico with Enrico. All thee girls learn new things and experience some struggles. Leeda gets an inheritance from her grandmother that no one expects. But she rises to the ocassion and gets some work done. Murphy finds out her mom has done a test to find her father, and she wants to know who it is. But not in a mean i hate you way. And she tries to avoid Rex, but really can't. Birdie was engaged to Enrico but calls it off and has to battle with selling the peach orchard that all 3 of them became adults in. What happens with these girls and to their beloved peaches? I loved it. I have read the second one, but not the first one and at first I kinda forgot who was who but then I remembered! I like the characters because they're so realistic and how feelings are described play out really well. Each girl is different yet they all are friends. I love reading about friendships like that.
