Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.
I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.
Feel free to follow and reblog!
An interesting book about a girl living in the seventies. It's really about her relationship with people in her life. There is also a time-travel side path that is interesting. I think reading this book as a third grader (right after I read A Wrinkle In Time) I would have loved this. Reading it now, I thought it was a good book, but definitely not geared for adults. My favorite parts were the preparation for the 20,000 Pyramid; it made me want to watch the classic game shows on the game show network.
