And Ben is her best friend’s boyfriend.
Let me say that I read this book right around the time of my birthday. Quite coincidental. :o) I thought Kayla was funny and charming. I like Ann, Kayla's Raggedy Ann come-to-life. My favorite doll growing up was Drowsy. I bet she'd rock those pink and white polka dot jammies.
This book was fun and got the overall message across without pounding you over the head with it. I liked the story and kept waiting to see what was going to be next for Kayla. My favorite line from the book was, "I wonder what it woujld be like to have that kind of shimmering possibility, that kind of endless expanse of dreams. To just choose something and be good at it." I have to wonder too. ;o)
There were no drugs, drinking or sex in this book. I would say 13 and up would appreciate this. I'm giving it 4 1/2 sweet kisses!
