~The Star of Kazan~

-by Eva Ibbotson

Received as a graduation present, (8th grade) I made up my mind to read the charmingly covered book as quickly as I could manage myself to read. But a 405 paged hardcover is not an easy task to handle "quickly". I had to take it slow. Something I loath. But it was worth it.

The book was hard to get into, and I had put it down for good one time because I had become disinterested. About a year later it fell into my hands again as I was looking for a good book. I read it from the beginning again, and it was wonderful.

I didn't remember all the detail that was inside when I picked it up again for the second time, but I was immediately engrossed. It is packed with the nitty-gritty details that I have fallen in love with.

Now you should read Ibbotson's A Countess Below Stairs. Did Rae tell you about that one?

Does Rae have a blog? I'm pretty sure I know who you're referring to.

Lauren: Nikki already told me I have to read A Countess Below Stairs. That's funny that you both should mention it. It must be just like The Star of Kazan, then. :] And Rae didn't tell me anything about it.

Christy: No, she doesn't. And yes you know. :]
