"In Spite of Killer Bees is a novel about not giving in and not giving up. Aggie and her two sisters have had to move to the small village that had been their father's childhood home. Their mother is long gone, and their father - who'd been in and out of prison - has died. Although the village holds little charm for the girls, they have hopes. It seems that their late grandfather has made them heiresses. In the small, judgmental village, Aggie must fight to keep her diminishing family together. By refusing to abandon those she loves and comes to love, she risks more than her happiness.

A straight-forward narrative about 3 sisters without parents hoping for a family inheritance. As each plans what they will do with the money, they find they are forced to realize the value of family and friends. The characters are simply drawn but realistic with no-one being either good or evil. Not Julie Johnston's best work but still enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this great coming-of-age story by Canadian author Julie Johnson. This is a story about three very different teenage sisters as they struggle with their pasts and figure out their place in the world. The story is not depressing, but thoughtful, sometimes funny, and intriguing. I also loved the small-town Ontario setting.

So predictable and so boring.
