These books really changed my life. I bought my first book when I was in the fourth grade and it opened my life to the life of foster children and social workers. I graduated in college with a BSW and have dedicated my life to the plight of foster children. I adopted my own children I fostered in 2004. Hilda Stahl captivated me for years with this series.

I own all the books in the Elizabeth Gail series and they are my favorite books ever. I have the 1980s edition from WindRider books and i keep them in a plastic box to keep them in good shape because they are so old but I take them out one by one and read through the entire series at least once a year
I read this as a child. Re-reading this book brought back wonderful childhood memories and my passion for reading all over again. I cannot wait to share them with my step-daughter and nieces. They are a must read for anyone dealing with anxiety, feeling left out or unloved.
