This second book was better then the first. It could be that there were more moments I could relate to like Virginia letting envy get into her heart because her family was poor and she worked for a rich family with children her age that got more than her. Yes I could relate to that.
While this book was pretty down for the most part it wasnt down the whole time. It like life had its ups and downs where in the first book I didnt see much ups at all.
Although this is a second book in Virginias books it can be read by it self. I can see
this one making a good book report for the kids.
