    " Great read, very quick by one of my favorite young adult authors. Heart breaking ending........ "

    " I enjoyed this book. It was simple, sweet and a bit sad. It is easily a story told many times by many different authors, but always a good reminder of what once was. Extremely different from Lowry's Giver series. A quick read for sure. "

    " You could certainly read the first 80% to a small child but I agree with the authors note in the beginning that it is not written for young children. However, I feel the negative comments were a bit harsh. Certainly 5th grade appropriate compared to what is on television. Less graphic than Big Bang Theory and other 2012 sexual exposures to our children via commercials. Another fab book by Lois. "

    " It was a wonderful book. The story is told from an adult, but through the eyes of an eight year old. It was funny and sad. The adventures of a young girl growing up during the 1910s. It allows the reader the opportunity to experience some of what it was like to live during that time period. How people were treated because of their differences. I think this was an awesome book for anyone to read, adult and child alike. "
