Karen Thysen definitely yes. I read it as a youth and now as a mature adult, enjoying all that went over my head the first time.
Vickie yes, yes, yes! It is so good! I have read it and re-read it many times I love it that much. You can't put it down almost. Yes! Read it!
Iris Definitely. If you relate to it once, then it will forever be a warm memory to you, because childhood is something that everyone has had to go through and something that everyone wants to relive.
