it was ok
Read in November, 2011

** spoiler alert ** I'm sure there are many young readers who will love this book and maybe even learn a few things, but it was not for me. I just did not like the main character at all. I felt like Molly spent all of her time mooning over her love interests. Also, there was a point where some kind of gyspy woman told her she had a 'healers touch' and there are several mentions of just the feeling of her hands bringing a patient relief, but she never expands on it and it felt out of place, almost heading into fantasy territory.
