I remember when I was a little girl, and later when I was not so little, but a teen, there were books I loved to read again and again, I never got tired of reading them. And now that I am in my fifties, I still enjoy. One of them is “Sophie’s Misfortunes” written by the Comtesse de Segur. The story of mischievous little girl who liked to be in trouble. I remember how delightful it was to read ll the adventure of Sophie de Rean, this French girl with a wild imagination and creativity.

Another one of the favorites was a book about a boy, a teenager who was learning to love, this love that comes when we start changing; this love that is still innocent but makes us tremble when our love touches our hand. I don’t remember the title of this book, but it was also an old one.

Little Women is a book that I read many times, I also watched the movie, but it was never like reading the book. And finally, I series of stories from the Grimm Brothers including Rapunzel and the Little Mermaid just to mention a couple.

All these are classic books that are unforgettable and the kind of books that grow with us. Let me tell you, my dear reader, that I have found a book with this same characteristics, a book that I have read twice already and that I would gladly give to every teen girl. This book tells the story of a thirteen years old girl in the 1800s; and even though where we can find out that when we grow up the same pure and innocent love feelings prevail.

This is the story of Maggie Elizabeth Harrington, a girl who cares about what happens around her, a girl who does what she has to do to protect little animals, even if they are a pack of wolves. She would do whatever she ha to do for them. And in saving them she finds her first love.

Maggie Elizabeth Harrington is a girl in her early thirteens who lives with her father and grandmother near Central Mine, North Michigan. Her mother died when she was a little girl, and even though the old woman gives her all her love and care, Maggie Elizabeth is coming to that age when girls need a mother. When questions about new feelings and thoughts that crosses her mind and heart.

I can only add: “Thank you! DJ Swykert for this awesome book!
