My personal Rating-
(and a half)
I’ll always have a special place in my heart (& bookshelf) for this series! Since I’m older now, though, I’m noticing a few grammar things and it can be a bit corny, but it’s still sweet. :)

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
