I really enjoyed this book because there were a lot of sad and happy moments. I also like this book because at the very end there is a section called A Peek into the Past. It gives information about things during Kirsten's time, like for instance there are some toys that children played with. This book is part of a series. It is the first of six books. There is also a part where Kirsten gets lost. This part reminds me of when I was at the State Fairgrounds. Every time we moved to a different train set I always lost my dad, but then I found him again.
I truly do recommend this book because it has some really great parts. I suggest this book to girls between ages eight and ten. I also urge this book to girls whom either like to get lost or like adventures. Also, if you like to travel a lot read this book. I think the part of the story that might interest you is the part where Kirsten finds Marta in Chicago. It is a very happy part.
