Another one of those books for young people I want to give five stars to just because it is so rare to read books like this any I do not remember coming across this delightful author as I was growing up but my friend Hilary wrote a review about one of her books which made me uite sure she was someone I would have loved then Thank you HilaryThis was one of the books still in print I could afford Also Margarita is a pet name I use for my daughter Meg In the story the main character an English girl doesn't like to be called by her full name Margarita preferring to go by Meg My own daughter is not into this genre at the moment alas However I plan to set it aside for for when she or her sister hashave children of their own Highly recommended as a coming of age story for pre teen girls especially Would have less appeal for boys

This one held up to re reading a little better than did My Daughter Nicola but there was a creepy Daddy Long Legs vibe to this that was a little off putting The scary almost supernatural thread that runs through so many of Arthur's books was a little developed here in the character of Miss Laura The subplot about the protagonist's dark skin was unsatisfactory in a lot of ways I got that Meg felt like there was prejudice because of that but there wasn't any external supporting evidence in the story This book is the first place I ever encountered an autistic child back when autism was comparatively rare As you might surmise from this wildly scattered review there's a LOT going on in this book It's good but not splendid Arthur's best are so much better than this one it suffers in comparison 25
