This was a quick and pleasant book to read because Alison MGhee writes so well. The story didn't draw me in quite as much as it has some readers, but I still enjoyed it. The characters are all interesting and Clara, despite being an unusual 11-year-old, sounds like one. The storyline is a bit old, in my opinion, but like I say, McGhee makes it work well. Recommended.
