I liked this book. Normally I have difficulties in reading books which we have to read but in about a few pages I found myself getting hooked on into the story and before I knew it I was already more that half way and it wasn't long before it was finished. Though slow paced I liked reading Annabelle's thinking processes and how she reacts to the complicated dilemmas in the story and more than once I found myself thinking that the decisions she's made I probably wouldn't have been able to think up, and what was admirable about it was that she was only eleven but from how she thinks there are times where it feels like she was older than that. Another thing I liked, though minor in the story, was the relationship with her brothers especially Henry, in the beginning they don't pay as much attention to her and we get hints that they can be pretty rough but after the whole Toby incident, Henry suddenly started to care more for Annabelle and even help her and it warms my heart to see that. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes it slow yet with at least some sensible conflict, it's not the usual city girl feel as the story takes place in the country side so Annabelle's character is a lot less restricting and her thoughts are easy enough to understand and relate to. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and if someone were to tell me to read it again, I probably would.
