I first listened to this work while traveling cross country. The voices reading the book rang true to the story and enhanced the telling. I recommend a good version of the book on tape for a wonderful listening experience.

Cute book. I have nothing profound to say about this book but nothing negative, either. I finished it and enjoyed reading it for the most part. No need to keep it on my shelves and I'm not likely to recommend it to anyone.

Picked it up while volunteering at the library. It was a slow night and finished it up before I left. I really liked her use of language. I liked seeing the world through Ellen's eyes and the truthfulness of them. The flashbacks kept a nice even pace. The very end seemed a little odd to me but Ellen was a little odd so maybe it all fit together as it should
