This book was waiting for me under the Christmas tree this year. Doesn't really look like my style, huh? But it was - about 30 years ago.
I remember this book from my childhood. I don't remember much about the plot or why I liked it, but I remember reading it over and over and over again. As I was putting together my Christmas list this year, I decided to ask for it (there were copies on Amazon going for a penny) and see if I could discover what captured my attention as a teenager.
Yep, I got funny looks when I unwrapped it, and stranger ones when I squealed for joy when I saw what it was. We'll see if the story lives up to my memories in the end.
