KIRKUS REVIEW

Mirroring adult behavior from a child's point of view, this book by the eleven-year-old author of Young Visitors has a naive and innocent observation. Young Miss Owsley meditates on the vagaries of parents and adults in general, and the method of dealing with same. The problem of analyzing mothers, fathers, grandparents and other relatives as well as the matter of religion, teachers and schools, parties, money etc. does not faze the author, and her pleasant, gentle, comments incomprehensible in parts, are appealing.
