Knowing that to interfere with their stories would cause mayhem in literature, Anne-Marie does her best to make each Heroine feel at home, with a roof over her head and a shoulder to cry on. But when Penny begins to feel overshadowed by her mother's indulgence of each and every Heroine, havoc ensues, and the thirteen-year-old embarks on her own memorable tale.
The premise of this story was so much fun that it was easy to overlook some of the flaws of the book (too much happening, overwrought characters, etc). I enjoyed the interaction of the characters from classic literature with the ‘modern-day’ (1970’s) people.
3 Stars (Rated PG-13, some mild sex and drugs)
