I like this book because you never know what's going to happen next. I really like this book because it has a very happy ending. This book is not full of suspense. I like the part in the story where Janey's family goes to the river because something exciting happens there. It tells the story of everyday life for Janey. It's kind of like you don't know what's going to happen next, but you're not itching to know. I think it is a kind of slow-paced book. Janey reminds me of my best friend, because she never gives up. I love Doris Gates's books!
I think this book is good for kids aged 5 and over. You should be the type of person that is ready for anything to happen and the kind of person that likes happy stories. This book has about 150 pages, so you should be a person who likes middle sized chapter books. I hope you like it!
