More sanctimonious than I had recalled. Still, I was glad to revisit the "glad girl" and think more deeply about those times. ( )

A delightful story of a young, newly orphaned girl, who comes to live with her spinster aunt, and brings joy to the whole town, with her 'glad game'. ( )

This is such a beautiful and sweet story. ( )

If this were written today it would be used as the script of a Pixar film. Like a Pixar film it slides right through the hardened shell of the cynical adult and stabs you in heart.
Its about a little girl who always tries to look on the bright side. It would be truly unbearable to read if not for fact that everyone else in the story is sane, and reacts just as normal people would, its a wee bit like Forest Gump. Its just so damn cute... but in a good way.
The ending isn't the best as a certain climax level is reached which the last part of the story can't live up to but overall i was VERY surprised at how much i liked this. ( )
