Every little girl at some point has kept a diary, and although this little girl was growing up in 1830¿s she was no different. This book is a day by day gathering of what all she went through over a couple of years in her life. What Catherine goes through in this story is very typical of the hardships that the pioneers went through everyday. She has to deal with the death of her mother, and becoming the mother of sorts in her own home by taking care of the cooking, sewing, and looking after her younger sister. She also has to deal with the total unexpected remarriage of her father after a week long trip to Boston. Read this heartwarming story of this little girl and what all she goes through everyday. The author of this book Joan W. Blos was born in 1928 in New York, New York. She has enjoyed reading and writing from the time that she was a little girl, she says it has always been a huge part of her life. As a teenager she published one of her stories in a national magazine. With this particular story she has won the prestigious Newberry Award and the American Book Award for Children Fiction in 1980.

Good, but confusing

At first this book was very bad. But when I got into to it more it started to get good. My only complaint is that you read one entry and then it automaticly goes to a new topic.

    A Young Girl Growing up in New England

    This book was not what I thought it would be. The beginning was a little hard to understand because it didn't use modern day english. The events she talks about later on in the book are easier to understand and follow along with. The author states that she included research in the book, but I only found a few parts where it seems the research was included. I don't think it completely reflected the time frame in which the title says.

    OK BUT NOT GREAT

    This book was an ok book. i really didnt like it because it kept going to different days of her life and it was very hard to understand.Its for people who like older kind of books. When we had to read it in our language arts class i could hardley remember anything we read the day before.

    Not that Great!

    The book I read was a diary. Ithink it is a little far fetched. In the time period I could see some of the things that went on, but not all. The main charicter was Catherine Cabot Hall. Each day she grew up a little. It took place in Meridth, new Hampshire, in the 1830. You got to see how she lived in the 1830s. That was the point the art5her was trying to get across.
