Carolee (librariansdaughter) | 1 comments When I was in school, we used to have these fliers show up once in a while and we could order books from the scholastic's company. Stupidly, I can remember that the book I'm looking for was from them, was a paperback, the cover was mostly red, and the book itself was about 1/2 thick. I cannot, however, remember the name of the book. I think it was set at the turn of the century, and the 2 dolls were worried because their girl was growing up and possibly be going away soon (either moving or going to boarding school) and wouldn't want them anymore.

It was one of my mother's and my favorite stories and she recently passed. I would give anything to find that book.

Thank you in advance.

Don't know why I'm thinking of Impunity Jane but I don't think that fits...
