I've read a lot of books from these series, with protagonists that were much younger than Edith was in this book, who is sixteen, and yet Edith struck me as such a child in the way she writes and portrays herself and the events around her. I could not get into the story because I could not relate to the character in any way. I did not like the way it was written, and the storyline, with Rosie's involvement, was frustrating at most what with the singing and theatre stuff that was added in there.
I think if the story was told from the mother's perspective, it would've been a lot more interesting for me. Or at least, if the writing was a little more mature given that she is sixteen years old, I might have enjoyed it a little more.
Although this book didn't seem to have that interesting a premise, unlike some others in the My Story series, I ended up really enjoying it. It was very well written, and flowed along well, so I never lost interest. I enjoyed reading Edith's diary and learning about how different life was for the middle class and the poor in Victorian England. Readers who enjoyed other books in the My Story series will most likely enjoy this book as well.
this book is realistic, but not gritty and I was gripped and couldnt put it down, great for fans of the my story sereis.
this book is great,I especially reccomend this my story book.
