One of the best Caroline Leavitt ever. This story is so sad and happy at the same time. This book will grab you and not let go forever. Read this now!

Couldn't put this book down. I think Leavitt developed her characters well and authenticly. I couldn't help but feel compassion for Dinah, an orphan who finally accepts her situation.I recommend this book to mother's of teenage girls,
I absolutely loved this book. Leavitt has such a way with characterization that I'm in awe. I'm off to find more of her work!

Slow start but glad I stuck with it!
Very sad story - and unsettling, just like life can be at times.
Boring story. Didn't like. Don't recommend.
