    "Disappointing"

    From reviews I read I thought this book would be a "Boxcar Children" or "Nobody's Girl" type story, with the children living on their own for the summer and devising ways to survive. That was always my favorite type of story as a child. However, I was so disappointed with the book that I never finished it. The characters were flat, their adventures dull, too many descriptions of boring things. It just didn't satisfy.
