Janelle
There's more to this book than the story of a young girl at boarding school. Pixie is a charming and engaging character, but the broader story of her family and home were also very enjoyable. I'm not sure what age group the author had in mind when she wrote this, but I would recommend it to the Young Adult audience, and adults who enjoy stories about children and families. Many thanks to the Librivox narrator for her very capable reading.

The first in the Pixie series, and what an awesome little book! This was the last series I had left to read for free on kindle, and I'm glad I left it to last. Pixie is a delightful character, unique, fun and great to read. She lights up the page much in the same way she lights up her families' lives. She really makes the story, although some of the secondary characters are fantastic too. Really loved this one!
