I first read this book in fourth or fifth grade because I was obsessed with everything magic related Elves fairies goblins unicorns etc The cover art is still so evocative Reading it for a second time much later in life gave me a better understanding of the complicated social themes that went over my head when I read it as a child This is one of those books that is worth a re read as an adult when you have some class consciousness and perspective on your own childhoodI will say however that the last line is still a mystery to me

Hillary doesn't believe all the mean things she hears about Sara Kate Sure she wears weird clothes and she lives in a dumpy house but if Sara Kate's as bad as everyone says how could she take such good care of the. This was an OK read for me I liked it but I didn't like it I liked some of the issues it presented but what I never like in a book is confusing the reader Reading this book as an adult was probably different than reading it as a kid but I wouldn't really feel like handing it to any 9 12 year old I know I think some of it was judgmental despite the main story line accepting and befriending someone even though most people make fun of them It also never shows any kind of concluding discussion between the main character and her mother which seems weird to me I don't like the way the book leaves you wondering or the bizarre ending paragraph or how Hillary never actually comes to a conclusion about what's true and what's not At any rate I wouldn't want my children to model their parent child relationship after this one and I sincerely hope I'm doing my end of that and so I wouldn't really recommend this book

Some of the issues tackled by this book remind me of other Newbery recipients but much of the story is wholly original I like the flow of the words and the way the relationship between Hillary and Sara Kate is never certain; it seemed anything might happen Sara Kate is an enigmatic figure and it was a joy for to watch as Hillary figures out that friendship is worth the hard work it reuires even if or perhaps because that friend is as unusual as Sara Kate The undertow of magic is visceral but ever present and I can see why this was named a Newbery Honor book Janet Taylor Lisle's storytelling definitely has a special uality about it
