I really enjoyed this satisfying story of a girl coming of age in rural New Zealand..I felt I was really 'there' with the girl and her family and friends in all they experienced..the scenery was also well-described, which is really important to me when I read a book. The story was truly wonderful and the ending very satisfying..a great read!
