This novel is based on the author’s experience at an English boarding school. She was a spirited kid, which makes her an engaging character. The story feels completely believable and real, something I’m craving lately after reading so many stories of extraordinary characters and magic. The view of English life from an American kid’s perspective is interesting and funny.
Libby is a member of the Blue Rose Girls, which is a group of authors, illustrators, and an editor with a team blog that I read regularly.
What else is on my nightstand? Ida B: . . . and Her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster, and (Possibly) Save the World, by Katherine Hannigan.
I’ve just begun this one, but right away I loved the writing. It’s fresh, true, and clever. Ida B. is another spirited but real character. So far, she hasn’t shown any signs of magical powers or hints of deep dark hidden secrets. Ahhhh.
