Read in May, 2011

The much anticipated sequel to Daddy-Long-Legs... That's the beauty of books published 100 years ago: the sequel's already published! Spares a lot of time and wasted wanting.

Jean Webster does not disappoint. Even though I must admit I liked Daddy-Long-Legs better, Dear Enemy was a pleasant surprise. Webster has this ability to keep the pages turning with inventive characters and almost no conflict. The story is more of a glimpse of life than an epic adventure, but it works flawlessly.

The ending, again, was not an unexpected turn, but that doesn't make it any less _________. (Word omitted for spoiler-ish content)

It's a pity Jean Webster didn't write more...
