    " This is a sweet story that I wish I would have known about when I was about 11. It has all the magic that children dream about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ellie (a.k.a. QE3) | 1/19/2014

    " My dad suggested I read this book (well, he sort of forced me to), saying it was sort of like The Moffats, which I love, so I read it and loved it, too! Luckily there is a follow-up book, Return to Gone-Away. Elizabeth Enright is now one of my favorite childrens' authors. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Bookwyrmgyrl | 1/12/2014

    " What a find! I discovered this book a few years ago, along with its sequel, "Return to Gone-Away Lake", and loved them! I had to ask myself, "How did I miss these books during my childhood?" They should not be missed by any book lovers out there. This is true, quality writing. The children in these books have wonderful summer adventures and forge wholesome friendships that will probably remind any reader of their own childhood. Classic! "

    " My teacher had me read this book for a guided reading group, and it was okay. I can't say it was my favorite book, but I can't say I hated it either. "
