Ehh, this was just missing something. I don’t care about any of the characters. I would happily give this to my past 13-year-old-self if I could though.

I’ve read this four times in one year so make of that what you will.

This series was a favorite of mine when I was in middle school. Although it is not currently a favorite, I still highly recommend it for girls ages 12-14.

I did not realize that this was somewhat of an addition to The Shunning despite being part of the Home to Hickory Hallow series.
