I picked up a very old version of this book for a dollar. (It didn't have a book cover, just plain blue, which is why I didn't rate the cover.) I didn't really know what to expect, so it was a pleasant surprise. The writing was easy to get lost in, even if the plot was, in retrospect, rather simplistic. I liked the characters. But don't expect a happy ending!
