I might. I mostly purchased it for a reading roundtable clollege class. It was a good book with some important lessons for young girls.
When Alice finds her missing spoon and realizes she blamed the little girl for something she did not do. This is a powerful lesson!
Selfishness. Learning that its not always about you and in life you dont always get what you want.
Not an extreme reaction but it did make me chuckle in a few spots.
The ending seemed rushed and a little cliched. Overall the book is a good book and worth the read.
