On the brink of adulthood (not to mention a whole new century), Rosie makes her first trip to the big city, along with her wide-eyed siblings and their rascally old granddad. There, amidst the wonders of the fair, Rosie discovers the world and herself, while also coming face-to-face with some of the era's most famous people--including showgirl Lillian Russell and Colonel William F. Cody (a.k.a. Buffalo Bill).

I have run a book club for more than a decade but never have time to read anymore- I listen while I cook/clean/fold laundry!
I LOVE Richard Peck- I listen to his works for comfort and entertainment. This one is on the same lines as his "teacher" and "librarian" titles. I was hoping the grandfather in here would be the male equivalent of grandma Dowdel, but he isn't quite. She is unique!
