Pros: As soon as I began this book I was concerned. The main character, Beany, is infatuated with a young man. I feared that this would permeate the book and make it useless. But, I was pleasantly surprised with the realism and touching portrait this book developed. Beany needed to decide what was important. She had to reevaluate her standards and priorities. If you don’t mind the infatuation, the book is well worth reading. It has an excellent message that could only be improved by adding a Biblical viewpoint .The family message is excellent and encouraging.
