it was amazing
bookshelves: classics, young-adult, favorites

It was a fun read.I read it in one sitting.It's been a long time since I've read a book non-stop.
Patty Wyatt, the protagonist of this story somehow reminds me of Judy Abbot,but not exactly like her.She is a funny character who makes me laugh out loud many times during the reading,she has the sense of humor.she doesn't like to obey rules and she breaks them whenever she likes.I love her method of studying for exams and her kindness toward others.
In my opinion,one of the reasons this book is not so popular as Daddy long legs is that there are no boys in it.
The only thing I didn't like about the book is that it's not a coherent book,I mean It consists of 15 short stories about Patty and her friends.As a result when I finish the book I wanted more and I decided to read Just Patty which is about Patty's school days.
