A sweet, but often sad story. Very enjoyable and a quick read, but it keeps you thinking about long after you turn the last page.

This is a really good book for kids and adults to help us make sense of things in our own lives and to not judge those around us. This story is very intricately knitted together.

Cal Lavender's mother has an episode which forces her to move to the "Pumpkin House" where her life - or rather what is NOT her life - becomes something new. Her adventures with new girls - nothing like her but everything like her - and the "Knitting Lady" teaches her a lot about who she really is and life in general.
A great book for teens, especially adopted or orphaned teens, or those who might wish they could get away from their parents. There is a story within the story that keeps these "Pumpkin House Girls" hanging on through some tough times. First audio book I've heard with a full cast - very neat and easy to tell the characters apart with the varying voices. Draws you in and keeps you thinking, even after the book is finished. Includes a brief instructional about knitting by the Knitting Lady at the end and a preview for another full cast audio book.
