Your Review: This book is amazing. It talks about Cornelia’s new friend, and how she has traveled around the world! It takes you on the adventures of her yet still talks about Cornelia’s daily life. It can get a little confusing at times, but will fill in blanks later. The ending is very sad! So be prepared. My favorite character is Cornelia because she is like me in lots of ways. She is shy and likes books. It would make a good movie, but wouldn’t be as good as the book. Students who like adventures, surprises , and fiction would like this because it has lots of that. I would recommend it because it is just amazing, and has a lot of adventures and surprises. This is a great book and would recommend it to everyone. Go read Cornelia and the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters!!
