It seemed like moving to the farm house magically brought the father out of his depression and solved all the family problems. Not very believable. Maybe if it would have described the slow process of healing it would have been more effective.
Funny story about the power of cooperation. I liked it.
This book was fun to listen to. The relationship formed between two misfits one summer shows how life-changing friends can be. Verbena needed to be someone else and her new-found friend allowed her do to this.
This book shows what an important role kids can play - even in dangerous situations. These kids saved their town during WWII by taking gold out of the town on their sleds over the course of the winter. The kids were brave and successful!
I loved listening to this book on CD. There were lots of interesting characters and the plot was really good. A little complicated for my younger brother but in the end, the whole family liked it.
