I can't really decide how I feel about this one. On the one hand it was a fun childhood adventure. I wish I had grown up in an era where we could run free like Lucinda did. How fun it would be to be friends with everyone and just run free.

On the other hand, the story is a bit slow. And, I am having a hard time figuring out how some of the things mentioned fit the rest of the story (for a clearer explanation see Spoiler below).

Anyway. Overall, an enjoyable quick read, but it's not my favorite.

And what was up with the murder? Totally random. A little girl finds a friend murdered in her home, and that's it? No mourning? No trying to figure out what happened? I realize it was probably her cruel, controlling husband, but still! Why introduce it to simply leave it behind?
