KIRKUS REVIEW

America's girl, still growing up the hard way and providing some softer moments as these familiar faces, Claudia and David, the faithful Bertha, and the three boys go to the Adirondacks for David's T.B. There Claudia faces an adaptation to a fairly unlivable house; the apprehension over David's visits to Dr. Geiger and an even more frightening prospect as David loses his nerve- is afraid to return to a normal world and a normal life; and the final heartbreak as Bobby, their oldest, is run over and killed- which at least brings David back on his feet, to New York and to work again... Life in this series is getting pretty real and earnest by now, but there's still the recognizability, the sentiment, the identification to give this a fond, feminine response.
