Gwen has always been a good neighbour, developing close bonds with those who live on Green Valley Avenue. But when working mother Frankie moves in with her stay-at-home husband Brandon and four young children, all good will evaporates. To keep her kids safe and her nosy neighbour out, Frankie is demanding that a front fence go up between the two properties, right where Gwen has lovingly grown a row of crab apple trees. I started the book thinking I’d side with the young family but I was soon totally Team Gwen. This suburban satire is a very promising debut. The dirty tactics employed by these feuding neighbours raises plenty of smiles and the relationship troubles faced by both Gwen and Frankie ensure the book has plenty of heart too.
