This book was refreshingly exciting to me. There were moments of adventure, heartache, and great relationships portrayed. The main character is a girl you could look up to. She is strong and determined. Loyal to her friends.
There is no profane language, or sexual content in this book. There is a scene of childbirth that may be uncomfortable for younger children to read. There are a few characters who smoke cigarettes or a pipe.
There is a death of a child, which may be very sad for children. I cried!
My only complaint it that is was too short! :o)
A great book!
