This book was a total delight to read! At first I wasn't so sure, by after just a couple of pages I got so into it I didn't want to put it down. I believe that younger girls would really enjoy it, but really it was a joy to read no matter your age! NOTE: Changed this to 5 stars! Just ran across it in one of my book boxes and I'm going to re-read it! The true measure of a 5 star book for me; I liked it well enough to read it again!!
