Daisy Fitzjohn lives inside of the lit halls of Brightwood. She and her mother have everything that they need inside the halls of their home. But one day Daisy’s mom leaves in the morning, and a stranger arrives later at the estate, claiming to be a distant cousin. His name is James Gritting. The days tick by. 1…2…3…4…and Gritting becomes more and more restless. It becomes more and more clear with each passing day that Gritting wants Brightwood for himself, and he will stop at nothing to get it.
Daisy as a character is not bad. But I would have liked Brightwood by Tania Underworth more if she learned and grew more overall. But as I said, she is not bad. She has a friend named Frank who is a lost explorer. She teaches Daisy most of things that she learns in this book. As a person in this book, she is very noble. She can be (and most of the time is) annoying. She does learn a lot, too. I felt that she actually learns more then Daisy did. The plot is pretty good. It flows well. This book would be good for kids ages ten to sixteen who like stories with mystery.
