This book was wonderful! When I was younger I used to watch The Sound of Music with my Bubbi (grandma) and she began calling me her "Liesl" - which I adored. Reading this book, I have found that so many other people have connected and related to this character! And reading about the "real" Liesl - Charmain Carr - was eye opening. Her life was truly changed by taking on a role in a film that she didn't even originally pursue. It was great to read some of the "making of" parts and I especially liked that she included information on the real von Trapp family and their reaction to the film. And her unlikely friendship with Michael Jackson?! Not something I had really expected. I really really enjoyed this book, as would any Sound of Music fan.
