    1. See reviews at YA Midnight ReadsThank you Egmont USA for sending me this copy No compensation was given or taken to alter this review While not a flawless novel, A Summer of Sundays is an ideal novel for young middle grade readers searching for a light, humorous read Yes for me, it was not awfully suitable, but if I were to go back two years or so and read this, I can say definitely that I would love this debut to a great extent All Summer ever wanted to do was to stand out Be noticed and cared [...]

    2. Sunday Fowler s story tugged on my heart from the first chapter and held onto it even after I was done reading the book.I had no idea how it could be like being one of the six or a middle child until I read this book I m a first born and always hated it I hated having to take responsibility for my siblings messing up and what not, but Sunday never got noticed That was a very hard place for her to be and wanting that to change was what drove the whole story.Sunday got her chance when she crossed [...]

    3. I bought this book as a recommendation from my friend Akoss for her summer reading challenge and while I failed to read it in that time frame, I m glad to have fit it in to my schedule a little every day this month because it was such a GREAT summer read The mystery element of the story was obvious to me almost immediately, but not in a way that made reading it feel like a waste of time I LOVE stories about big families, having always wished to be a part of one or make one for myself, and the ch [...]

    4. As the novel opens, we meet Sunday Fowler, one of six who just wants to be noticed When her parents stop at a gas station and leave her there, I was convinced I was going to read a Home Alone type of story Instead, I found this to be an endearing tale of an almost twelve year old little girl looking for her family to notice her.Sunday is the go to child in the family, the one her parents know they can count on While this is admirable, it is also tiresome to her She wants than just being Sunday. [...]

    5. Review originally posted on Rather Be Reading BlogYou may not know it yet but you are probably a lot like Sunday In most ways Maybe you re not smack dab in the middle of six kids in a family but even if you have another sibling, I m sure your parents or relatives have mixed up your names Or like me, with three older successful cousins, you can feel inferior sometimes But I ll go out on a limb and say you probably fit the bookish part of her The girl who is so well read classics too at almost 12 [...]

    6. This book was well written, and appealed to my love for an old fashioned story There were several things I did not love about this book, but not enough to make me put it down I did wonder, as I read it, if my actual middle grade daughters would like or dislike the same things I did, so I will have to follow up after they read it.For some reason, as I read, I had in my mind the old man and the young boy from the movie Up This is not a bad thing I loved that movie but it somehow took the story awa [...]

Sunday Fowler is the middle of the middle child You see this right away in the opening when something tragic yet funny happens She and her family are moving to a new place over the summer because her father has been hired to remodel a library On the way there, they leave Sunday at a gas station They do return, but only because they were going in the wrong direction, not because they noticed she was missing Sunday vows that this summer she s going to make her mark on the world.While helping her p [...]

    10.

    12. What a delightful read A Summer of Sundays by Lindsay Eland is the perfect middle grade book Since Sunday is a middle child in a large family, her goal is to do something that makes her stand out from the rest of her siblings However, it was what she didn t do rather than what she did do that shows her real character Loved that about this book And I kept laughing along the way as I read it every time Sunday s parents called her by one of her siblings names As a middle child of seven, I have been [...]

    14. Sweet but forgettable middle grade fiction about a girl from a big family who tries to solve a mystery in order to get noticed The mystery is fairly obvious from the start and the protagonist s whining grated on me by the end.

    17. This book is amazing No and C.J were probably my favorite out of the six disclosing Sunday of course since they provided lots of comedy This book also really digs deep about the concepts of being noticed and the thin line between right and wrong So, if you are looking for a both mystery and heartwarming book, you should definitely read this.

    26. Kids that are fans of contemporary, small town settings and mysterious neighbors will enjoy this book It s a sweet, nostalgic feeling story about a girl that feels lost in her family I also come from a family of six kids, so I could totally relate to Sunday s desire to stick out I also loved the way her parents could never remember her name When families get large, parents tend to get names mixed up I do it all the time to my own kids and I only have two.I liked the characters for the most part [...]

    28. I do not come from a large family so I had a hard time with the idea that the parents wouldn t notice one of their kids like this at the gas station, especially but that didn t stop me from enjoying A Summer of Sundays I loved Sunday she was spunky but reserved, smart, and incredibly responsibled not perfect You could tell that she has shouldered this responsibility for a while and it was something she noticed and felt her other siblings wouldn t I enjoyed the family theme throughout with each o [...]

This was a fun read that I can see middle grade readers really enjoying I think anyone with siblings can relate to Sunday s feeling of being overlooked While the family dynamics were a big part of the story, the mystery added another interesting element to it I loved the idea of finding a hidden manuscript in the basement of the library how exciting It was pretty easy to solve the mystery myself before the characters finally figured it out, though Sunday is faced with an ethical dilemma once she [...]
