it was ok

'Oh, my gosh. Why did I just waste those precious minutes?' is what I thought after I read this book. 'Why was I tricked into thinking that Camilla would be interesting? Because she's wearing a blue coat and red scarf?'

Aside from the quirky color choices, which I must credit to the illustrator and not to Camilla, I couldn't bring myself to like Camilla, and I didn't necessarily see her maturation process through the story...and isn't that what a coming-of-age novel is supposed to be all about? The ending...well, let's not get me started on the ending. 'Disappointing' is the least of it. I am going to sell this book back. Soon.

(However, I couldn't bring myself to give this only one star because that would be putting it on the level of "Through A Glass Darkly" and nothing by Madeleine L'Engle deserves that.)
