In my mind there are two "surefire" things when it comes to entertainment. Hallmark Hall of Fame movies and Newberry Medal Winner or Honor books. This book won the Newberry Medal for 1938. This was an enjoyable story that I'm not sure my students will be able to relate too well. Primarily because the cost of living is so much more expensive than it was at the time this was written. I think that they'll have a hard time relating to how Garnet (the main character) is able to buy so much with less than $5.00. Not really a disappointment but not a "can't put it down" book either.
