really liked it
Read in September, 2012

I read this with Dorothy (and she is demanding to start And All Between tonight). I remember loving this trilogy to death when I was in elementary school - I think I checked it out of the library at least six or seven times, which is a lot when you consider that we were only allowed to check out one book a week. It's interesting to reread it as an adult, and to notice some things that went right over my head as a kid.

Susan I don't think I read that one, but I loved The Velvet Room and The Headless Cupid by the same author. And one book a week is criminal! We were allowed six, which horrifies Susy, who rarely has fewer than 40 books out at once.

Elizabeth Nugent Dorothy usually has 20-30 books out from the public library at once - but she is only allowed 2 at a time from the school library, once a week.
