This book is very interesting for two reasons. One, in the beginning of the book, Turtle's aunt does not even seem aware that Turtle is coming to live with her. Two, Turtle is not making an effort to make friends with her cousins. I would think that she would make and effort to be friends because she does not know how long she is staying in Key West.
I think that a character trait of Turtle's is that she is very cunning and smart. An example of this is when she tells the ice cream man that she left her quarter to pay in the bottom of her tin.
I think that Turtle in Paradise gives a kind of moral, that can be an important factor of somebody's life. I really like Turtle in Paradise because it is mainly funny and makes some jokes.
I believe that this is a very humorous and good book. Turtle seems like the kind of person that goes around making friends. It is a very touching story that is set in the period of the great depression. I loved this book and would gladly read it again.
