This book came highly recommended, and I must say I loved every minute of it. It was also a very quick read.
The story takes place in 1961 in
Bright Idea #1: If you take an ugly girl and you dress her up in a pretty pink dress, lacy anklets, and plunk a homemade bow on her head, you're not going to get a pretty girl. All you're going to get is an ugly girl in a pretty dress, lacy anklets, with a bow plunked on her head.
The two girls become like sisters. I could feel the utter sense of happiness when Winnalee told Button that she was her best friend, and I also felt Button's pain when she is forced to keep a dark secret from her friend.
This book is a wonderful coming of age story which reminds us to appreciate the little things in life, and to view the world through the eyes of a child now and then. This is a story of life, love, friendship and pain. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
