Some moralistic stories, some great stories. I really enjoyed Railroad Through and Through, in particular.

Another book of short stories featuring strong female characters. In this case, they are all preteens. Kind of a mixed bag, and I really didn't like the story about girl scouts, because I felt the one scout leader (if you read it, you'll know the one I mean) was not very realistic. I think any other scout leader in that situation would have known/done the right thing.

Definitely a good book for 8-12 year old girls. A great book about strong, young, problem solver girls. I think this book sends a great message to the reader. This book is also great because the it is made up of a bunch of short stories, so if the reader gets bored easily, or has a hard time finishing books, it's easier to read. You can just pick it up, read one story, then put it down.

I was born on June 1, 1941. My first home was an apartment in Manhattan's Upper West Side, a neighborhood that overlooked the George Washington Bridge. Soon after kindergarten, my family moved to Scarsdale, which seemed to be “in the country.” In high school, I broke my ankle when I went out for the lacrosse team, so I wrote a sports column for the school newspaper. I don't think I showed any part ...more
