I first encountered this book at summer camp when our counselor read this book to us a chunk at a time. There were so many parallels between our coming of age as we transitioned from campers to counselors and experienced a new life full of responsibilities and choices we had not really imagined and the same sort of transformation Winnie faces in the book as she considers a new path with the Tucks away from her safe, boring life. We all fell in love with the book and characters; over a decade later, my counselor friends and I still occasionally reminisce about the story and how much it influenced our journey. This book would make a great present for a child who is transitioning to middle or high school. While this story has fantastical elements, I love how they are not taken to extremes that would make them inaccessible to the general reader.
