Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Thirteen-year-old Lizabeth is consumed with thoughts of winning the 1906 Strawberry Queen contest. One day Lizabeth finds out that her four-year-old sister, Tracy, has scarlet fever. Their house is placed under quarantine and Lizabeth moves in with her cousin's family. Every night Lizabeth sneaks into her family's house to check on Tracy. Once exposed to scarlet fever, Lizabeth decides not to return to her cousin's cottage. Instead, she wanders around and winds up at a dilapidated shack that belongs to the town's outcast, Crazy Mary. Lizabeth's priorities change after she spends a short amount of time in Crazy Mary's world. Later that day, Lizabeth sneaks into Tracy's bedroom and is at her sister's bedside when she passes away. This third title in the series "The Girls of Lighthouse Lane" teaches the reader to appreciate every moment with family and friends. An interesting and educational class assignment would be to ask students to compare the early 20th and 21st centuries. Authors Kinkade and Tamar pack this text with positive messages about faith, family, and friendship. 2005, Avon Books/HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 8 to 14.

VOYA
All the stories in the Girls of Lighthouse Lane series have certain features in common. Each book focuses on one of four friends, aged thirteen to fourteen, who live in Cape Light, Massachusetts, around 1906. Each girl has a passion or liking for something or someone, obstacles are overcome, and each literally thanks God in the end. In Lisbeth's Story, Lizabeth is the wealthy friend who cares about beauty and looks and subscribes to the view that boys do not like intelligent girls. Her immediate goal is to become the Strawberry Festival Queen. Unfortunately scarlet fever hits Cape Light and her little sister. Quarantined at her cousin Katherine's house, Lizabeth sees what it is like to have to do chores and work. When her sister dies, she is filled with remorse because she has sometimes treated her sister as a nuisance. She later helps the doctor lance a patient's infected arm. These two events move her to change her goal to becoming a doctor. And of course, everything works out in the end. For young female readers who want simplistic, contrived, and happy endings, this series will fit. VOYA CODES: 3Q 3P M (Readable without serious defects; Will appeal with pushing; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8). 2004, HarperCollins, 176p., and PLB Ages 11 to 14.
