This Full House by Virginia Euwer Wolff



This is the final book to the Make Lemonade trilogy which includes Make Lemonade and True Believer.

LaVaughn is a senior in high school, she's finally made it! She has seen the hardships of life, had her heartbroken, paid attention to her studies, a part-time job, and even participated in extracurricular academic activities.

In this book, she works even harder. She is accepted into the "Women in Science" Program and decides on her career path. LaVaughn continues to spend time with Jolly, Jeremy and Jilly, even helping Jolly heal a broken relationship from her past.

Will Lavaughn accomplish the dreams she's worked so hard to make come true?

What I Thought:
I think this is a wonderful conclusion to this trilogy. Readers who have been cheering and hoping for LaVaughn will overcome the obstacles and succeed.

It is wonderful to see this character who has every odd stacked against her, work so hard to overcome.

A wonderful trilogy, a superb book, very highly recommended.
