Good read for young people. I was interested as my granddaughter and grandson will be attending that exact school. It gives a young reader the pros and cons of a boarding school, but very much impresses on them the need to open up to those who are different than yourself. I enjoyed reading it aloud to yet another younger granddaughter who wanted to know everything about her cousins upcoming schooling adventure.
A lovely read for children to share with parents and to speak of diverse cultures.
This is a charming account of an American girl in the care of her aunt and uncle adapting to life in an international boarding school in Switzerland. No complicated plot twists or anything, just a beautifully written story with a simple premise at the heart
This book had lot of adventure, which I liked. I also liked how you thought you knew what was coming, but you really didn't. I think that it was such a good book that there should be a second one so that I could find out what happened to everbody. The book I feel has a really good story line and didn't get too carried away that it gets confusing. If you ask me, I was kind of sad to finish the book because it really did hold my attention ( not really in the beginning, by the 10th chapter though).
This book is the best book in the world it is fun and creative it has all the adventure put into one
Honestly, this book took me to places I've never been before while capturing perfectly feelings I've felt before of homesickness and independence. I love you Sharon.
Awesome amazing great good unbelievable book.I loved it.I would recommend this book for kids all around the world to read all the time if they were able to read it.I cannot believe how thick it was.
Fantastic book, different cover than the one pictured. I'm sad. I like the old cover. I especially enjoy having matching covers for my novels groups.
