Alice Parker is a thirteen year old on the threshold of change. But not quite into womanhood.
This is a story for younger children, but that didn't stop me from thoroughly enjoying it. I suppose it's slightly different reading it as a grown woman and understanding the greater meaning of her change. Or it might just be a kiddies book.
This is very well written. Alice's fear of the unknown, her best friend's unquestioning help and Alice's brother - a bit awkward around her.
A very nice story indeed.
