    Good Book

    I read "Until They Bring the Streetcars Back" and "Finding Laura Buggs" first. I was hooked and ended up buying "Growing an Inch". I wasn't disappointed. Another geat book, although for me this book was a little more emotional. You hurt for the main character and what the family goes through during difficult times - yet they perservere and grow stronger for it. Another great book by West.

    A terrific read!

    I loved this book. I found myself pulling for the main character throughout and like the twists and turns the author gave the story!

    Enjoyable, easy read

    I have read most of West's books and thought this one was as good as the others. As with his other books, he includes some surprising and uncommon twists in the plot. I was hooked and wondering what would happen. I think I actually liked this one better than 'Until They Bring the Streetcars Back'.

    Not the best

    I've read all of the books by West and I felt this one was lacking. It has the same characters of Laura Buggs but it just wasn't the same quality read as the other books. There wasn't the anticipation or energy of the other stories. Sorry but I don't feel I can recommend this one.
