I think this high-spirited girl has turned into a young lady in this book. Rose is in love with her best friend!! This story is defenitly great! LAura is just like her daughter. But in other ways they can be really different.

I am twelve years old. And even though I am not exactly 14 or 15, I can still relate. This is not only an interesting and intriguing book, but also fairly educational. It tells us how life was back in the late 1800's and shows us cultures and traditions that have been forgotten. I would not only advise girls to read this book, but every Rose book. I would also advise the other books in the Little House series, which goes back all the way back to Rose's great-great-grandmother. Definately a must read!!

Rose Wilder and her family are still living in town after moving away from the Rocky Ridge Farm three years ago. Rose is 13 when the story begins and 15 when the story ends. Rose witnesses the beginning of the year 1900, and Paul who is a dear friend leaves on his new job in Iowa. Between everything Rose grows and learns about responsiblity, happiness, proudness, and that she is who she is. The Wilders produce their first apple harvest and Rose gets ready to graduate from school. She also learns the fun of letter writting and communication. This is a sweet book and I would recommend it to anyone.
