    A cute little epistlatory novel, somewhat along the lines of Visits of Elizabeth , only not quite as satisfying of an ending I was quite catched by it I find itremarkable because of the circumstances of it s writing than for the actual book itself Look it up

    Really funny I thought an actual teenager wrote it.

  8. Tom Tom says:

    I came to this with a certain amount of apprehension, would I enjoy such a book, would it be full of flippantly and boring details about women s clothes while there is some of the latter, this was a refreshing, enjoyable and fun read.Full of amusing insights and captures the spirit of the times, at least for the well off, covering several countries and a lady who doesn t behave as her father thinks she should, encountering plenty of adventures along the way More people should pick this up.
