The Van­der­beek­ers and the Hid­den Gar­den

The Borneo Post - Good English - - Short Story Section - By Ka­rina Yan Glaser

Re­turn to Har­lem’s “wildly en­ter­tain­ing” fam­ily in this funny, heart­warm­ing se­quel. When catas­tro­phe strikes their beloved up­stairs neigh­bors, the Van­der­beeker chil­dren set out to build the best, most mag­i­cal heal­ing gar­den in Har­lem—in spite of a locked fence, this­tles and trash, and the con­flict­ing plans of a wealthy real es­tate de­vel­oper.

While Isa is off at sleep­away orches­tra camp, Jessie, Oliver, Hy­acinth, and Laney are stuck at home in the brown­stone with noth­ing to do but get on one an­other’s nerves.
