I've heard some great recommendations for this book, but I cannot say that I love it. The cover and even the blurb on the back of my Scholastic edition are misleading. It appears to be a bit of an early romance story. However, it is not that at all--it is a book about a young British girl living in the U.S. during WWII and attempting to break a secret code with a boy who is her cousin by adoption. Felcity, the main character, is well drawn and I like her and her family, but I didn't find the mystery of the code to be much of a mystery. I realize I am an adult and children may not see the clues as well as I, but it didn't take me long to guess what Felicity's parents might be doing. The story is a well-painted picture and I enjoyed visualizing it, but plot seemed oddly lacking in suspense.
