A lighthearted novel of family life. When 15-year-old Lucy Weber's parents abruptly leave their high-powered jobs to become innkeepers on Cape Ann, Lucy agrees to go with them and her two younger brothers for the summer, with the option of returning to New York to live with her grandmother when school resumes. Lucy and her brothers each find a special friend as they settle in at the Scottwood Inn, and each learns some valuable lessons about life. These subplots are interesting enough, if predictable from the outset and occasionally preachy. The inn's guest list fills out the book's characters. Mr. Ainsley, an elderly year-round resident, helps Nathan Weber solve the mystery of the inn's ghost; and Cousin Joan, freshly dumped by her husband, ends up saving the day when a hurricane hits. The characterizations, save Lucy's parents, are adequate, and on the whole, they are an entertaining lot. Although the mood wanders as each of the various storylines comes up in its turn, it's a safe bet that Don't Rent My Room! will be enjoyed by young teens. --Joyce Adams Burner, formerly at Spring Hill Middle School, KS
