I don't believe I ever read these books about the period when Betsy and Tacy were in high school when I was a child and so enjoyed the earlier books in the series. These are so much fun to read, to dream about a simpler time in the US through the eyes of a girl growing up at the turn of the 20th century. Pure escapism and joy! I'm completely caught up in the adventures of Betsy and "the Crowd" now, so I have to get the next book(s) on order.

21.88% "I don't think I ever got this far in the Betsy-Tacy series as a child, as they are in high school now. I'm really enjoying these looks at a simpler life in turn-of-the-20th-century Minnesota. A nice break from the crazy, violent, world we live in now. This is how people lived before computers and Smartphones, and we could learn a lot from them."
