" We read these out loud with our 7-year-old and she loved them. Addy may be the first chapter books to have captured her attention. " said.

"I'm so grateful that the older women in this series weren't bitterly controlling like the others I've been reading.

And I want to thank Ms. Porter for letting Addy be petty, smug, and proud, all things that children can be. A lot of the other books shy away from that deliberate hostility in the main characters in favor of honest but stupid decision-making. I hate to be /that person/ in the AG community, but I do sometimes miss just the original eight girls.

Anyway.

It's been probably a decade since I last read Addy's books, and if anything, they're even lovelier and more comforting than I remember. That's an odd thing to think when they're about a family escaping from slavery, yes, but there's something so warm, wholesome, and gorgeously peaceful about their lives in Philadelphia. The food? The fabrics? The description of the city? Maybe all of it. Everything together, plus the love and hope the Walkers have that they'll bring their family back together one day, feels the way a fresh pie tastes, I think. "Pie is home, and people always come home."
