These are the responses of my 12-year-old granddaughter during a hurried trip to catch a plane. Julia is very smart and social. She went through the book but has not read it fully.
She finds good things in it, especially in the Things to Do selections, but on the whole thinks it more suitable for younger girls, such as her 10-year old cousin (also bright but much less mature). It wouldn't do for her and her group; they would find it below their standard. Also, she found it old-fashioned (we mentioned the style may be deliberate). In sum, a great book for younger girls. On that basis she would give it four stars
