Wasn't as into this one--I found it odd that after the Larsons' house burned down, there was no further discussion of Kirsten's role in what happened. Everybody was just happy that they were conveniently able to get enough money to buy their neighbor's house, and that the neighbor was also conveniently leaving. A bit too contrived for me. Also was getting more irritated at this point by Kirsten's disobedience having massive consequences for her family. Somebody needs to tie that girl to a chair.

Kids who have done awful things and have been really sad about them would probably enjoy this book more than I did.
