Read in April, 2012

This really brought me right to that time and place. It's hard to see the world of a fourteen year old when life was so different from ours -- both my time and the present time. I am sending the book to Baya and Esme for their 8th birthday, along with blank journals and a set of pencils, hoping that they will take this up to see their world in a more measured way. (Recommendation is for age 8 - 12, and I believe they have more than 8 year old sensibilities.)
