This is way better than most paperback books for age 7-10. We started it in family storytime, and then my daughter finished it by herself before we could get back to it as a family. She is an average reader and I usually have to encourage her to read. The 2 parallel plots that are in this book are a modern-day story of 2 sisters (Lila and Rose) and their grandmother who owns a doll hospital. The bisque doll (made around 1900) has a cracked face and winds up in the doll hospital. She tells her story, from the time she met her girl-owner in 1900 to the time she wound up in the doll hospital. It's a great plot, well written.

My 9 year old daughter Hilary read this book by herself and recommended it to her best friend. She is reading the 2nd book in the Doll Hospital series now. Nice to find a book that offers some historical information along with a good story kids (especially girls) will enjoy.

I am a school librarian and when I read this I knew the girls 2-4th grade would love this book. It has a great historical background and will keep their interest. Can't wait to read the others in this series.
