9 CD's read by Blair Brown. I LOVED THIS STORY. If you are a fan of Anne Tyler...you will love it too! I think this is my favorite Anne Tyler...it has it all...a story told over generations....sharing one families...hopes...dreams...failures...and life struggles....I hated for it to end.
CUTE STORIES...all short stories...not what I thought it would be...I like a begining to end book...but thats just me. The nice thing is that you get a taste of all these authors and see if you would like to try something else they wrote.
Advertise for boys? why not? there are no boys at the Alma Stephens School for Girls, and Lisa, Palmer, Sharon and AMy don't want to spend every Saturday night up in their suite just eating pizza and complaining. So they advertise for pen pals--MALE pen pals and their ad works...maybe too well.
this book is probably good for middle school children
