OK Mandie, just how many times do you have to be told something for you to obey? Seriously, here is where I get irritated with her (and I did back when I originally read these books too!). Over and over she's told certain rules. Don't be wandering around at night. Don't go into the attic. Don't go outside. Even the unspoken rules that we all know - that SHE knows - are meant to be broken. Don't leave your grandmother's house in the middle of the night and travel across town alone to break into a
The Mandie series is one of the most memorable book series of my childhood. I still fondly remember the adventures with Mandie, Celia and Joe. Grandma brought one each time she visited. I recently saw that she has written at least 10 more from where I left off. I actually went and pulled out my series from storage and am going to reread the series and add in the new books. Highly recommended for young adult readers!
I'm pretty sure (my memory is a little foggy) that this is the first Mandie book I ever read and what made me read more of it and love the series growing up. I can't stand the style of writing now and the racism is so blatant it hurts, but I have fond memories of Mandie and her adventures.
