Review:

"The story line is laid out in a manner that is easily followed, and what there is of plot tension is resolved at the end. Vocabulary level is consistent across the 14 chapters. I would suggest that the content of this book will appeal to younger readers in the age range and primarily to girls. It might serve well as a read-aloud."

Recommended.
