it was ok

This book was something that I didn’t feel attached to the characters as I do the ones I do in the Dear America series.

To me the character Virginia never really changed throughout the story. Maybe that is why the story is more then one part. She seems to try and change but instead just whines through the book.

The way it was written did not seem to connect to me as a reader. Yes the little girl is writing to amuse herself as her brother taught her but it should be a flowing story as well. I just do not feel that it did flow freely as it should.

In the end I just felt it was a generic version of the Dear America series.
