I came across a quirky little gem of a book in my library media center the other day. This is one of those reading situations where it is of dire importance that one ignores the cover art when deciding whether to read the book.
See? It was originally published in 1968 and is unfortunately out of print. My copy was purchased by the library in '68. Yes, we have some ancient tomes, indeed.
Ellen Grae feels sure her father won't send her to stay with her aunt in Seattle if she proves she can be a "lady" and take care of herself. There is a bit of an 'Anne Shirley' feel to the main character in the book that I am definitely drawn to.
Anyone read it?
