A Newbery Award winner, I found this book to be slow-paced though I enjoyed the subject matter. This is the fictional diary of a young girl growing up in New England in 1830-1832. The voice was very authentic and the research well done, but just not compelling. I started this book almost a year ago, was distracted, and never found a reason to pick it up again till now, and only because I didn't have anything I was dying to read at the moment. Still, I liked it for the portrayal of life in the period. Not sure how much I would have enjoyed it if I'd read it as a child or teen.
