I can’t quite believe that we are at book 17 in the wonderful 44 Scotland Street series! This is a series that explores just how admirable, and awful, we humans can be in both our conventionality and complexities. When Galactica MacFee joins Bertie’s class at school, war ensues between her and Olive. The characters, with their individual quirks on full display, are fabulous. I adore the gorgeous Bertie, and revel in the awfulness of his mother Irene, while Cyril’s love of ankles makes me smirk. I feel as though I am a part of these characters as they wend their way though life, each new outing may reveal something different, yet I feel right at home. Alexander McCall Smith uses the most thoughtfully light touch in his storytelling. He is never cruel or harsh in his humour, and allows the reader freedom to explore while revelling in the detail. For me these books are a tribute to kindness and empathy. Fabulously entertaining, witty, and thoughtful, The Stellar Debut of Galactica MacFee joins the 44 Scotland Street family with aplomb.
