I wasn't nearly as enchanted by this as I was hoping. It wasn't bad, just a bit forgettable in the end. It was enjoyable enough in he moment and there were some really high points - mostly Caddie's adventures with her two favorite brothers. Those episodes rang the most true and, therefore, were the most satisfying. I found the ending both disappointing and not very believable. The very best thing about the book for me were the accompanying line drawings by Trina Schart Hyman - fantastic!
