Cherry Ames at Spencer and Night Supervisor
To be honest, I didn't read most of this book. I found the expository information to be excessively boring. I was so bored that I quit reading the book a few chapters in and read Brandon Mull's Five Kingdoms series. I then tried to continue reading this book but was so very bored. I tried skimming and couldn't get to anything that seemed interesting. I decided to go on to the next book.
In Cherry Ames #11, Night Supervisor, Cherry goes to work at a rural hospital that is understaffed and in great need of money. The hospital was to receive a large sum in a man's will, but he changed his will. Soon, Cherry has reason to believe that the will was not changed and is missing.
I ended up having to skim a lot of this book. Finally, the book began to interest me sometime past halfway through the story. I skimmed some of the later part of the story, but at least I was able to enjoy some of it. I felt as I reached the end of this book that my Five Kingdoms experience was losing its hold and that I would be able to enjoy the next Cherry Ames book.
I also want to mention that I do not like Midge. The reader is supposed to like her, but I don't. I also don't like Dr. Joe. My negative reaction to both characters, who are very important to Cherry, make it harder for me to enjoy these books.
