“Georgie Blake’s real name was Martha Miller. More than anything she wanted a more interesting name and to be eight like her best friend Harriet Ann. And so, three months before her birthday, tired of waiting for this important milestone and with summer vacation approaching, she told her dad, Walter, that she was now eight, and wanted to be called Georgie Blake. Her dad humored her, thinking it was just a phase she was going through. He didn’t know that all phases do not come to a natural end. Eventually he got so used to calling her Georgie Blake he forgot about her real, given name, until some occasion, like a teacher’s conference or school concert, when they’d talk about Martha Miller or he’d see it in print and have to remind himself it was his daughter.” Georgie Blake and the Bushie Sisters is a glance back at a fifties childhood. While it is a middle grade children’s book, most will enjoy the antics of Georgie and her best friend Harriet Ann. The girls are quite precocious, getting into one mischievous scrape after another; most resolved with the assistance of the Bushie Sisters who live next door to Georgie and take care of her while her father works. Each chapter is a new adventure of fun and excitement.
