Yes, I enjoyed this book.
Let me clarify, I enjoyed this book til the last chapter or two
where the main character made a choice that left me feeling rather
disappointed in her.
When you read a true story (or any story for that
matter) you want to root for the main character and for the most part I
did. But without giving a spoiler review lets just say that I was going
to let my daughter read the book after I had finished with it but now
I'm not. And while I purchased the following book "Shiny pennies and
grubby pinafores" I am reluctant to read it.
I know its true life and
people do make choices that others wouldn't or even that they themselves
might do differently if given the chance ,so I know you cant honestly
fictionalize a true story to make it more palatable to everyone who
might want to read it.
However, I do wish the authors in this whole
"back in time" series would take into
consideration that there are young people who's parents are trying to
bring them up with good morals would LOVE to read these 'old timey'
books, only without offence. Just something to think about.
