The biggest thing I remember about this book is the name "Spanish Moss" for a rabbit. Still the book was a good read of my childhood and deserves it's place on this list. I don't remember when I first read it just that I did and parts have stayed with me even today.

Laurel was brave and superior when she had scoliosis and had to take care of her bunny's babies, but this didn't have much of a plot. The chapters were not filled with descriptive words or have much dialouge. Just a first person. She describes her story as a shopping list. Not exactly the best story.
