I had never read this book until I was an adult. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The characters are real and believable. Now I want to read the entire series.

Helpful Score: 4


This book was the greatest addition to our daughters' library. This book covers everything for tween girls in a tactful but straighforward manner. Both my daughters and I found the information in the bookful extremely helpful.

I enjoyed this book so much I could hardly put it down. I found myself rearranging my schedule to find more time to read. I too went from at one time having the "perfect dog" to currently having one of the wildest out of control dogs I have ever seen. Like Marley, we love him in spite of or because of his shortcomings. This book will touch your heart with joy and sadness, sometimes both at the same time (my favorite emotion: laughter through tears) ... because it truly is about life and love.

Amazing historical account of the battle with smallpox on two sides of the ocean, both occurring without knowledge of the other; London and Boston. I enjoyed the book very much but dd feel that it got bogged down in too many details of peoples' lives. Good explanations of the history of inoculation and the disease and peoples fears and misunderstandings
