mixed feelings

I love American Girl, but in this book, I feel like there are areas that I disagree with. For example, Kristen pretty much burns down their house and there is no punishment no nothing. Really? I just can't comprehend teaching this to kids. Or her inability to memorize one sentence of poem? Additionally, narration was so flat line, I barely survived.

Wholesome and Clean Books!

Kirsten's story is sweet and nice. It has a very real feel to it. You want to be like Kirsten and her family. Anyone, young or old would enjoy her story.
