I started this book expecting a funny book about life in the 1930s. I was not expecting the sweet storyline about Natalie. I was really touched by this story. The book as a whole was a lot of fun, but without Natalie's story, it would just have been another YA historical fiction book. I almost didn't make it through this book, though, because I hate hate HATE bratty, manipulative children whose parents think they are angels. But I got over Piper, so this book was fine.
