Cute story. Easy to read in a day. I enjoyed Judith and Cassie's adventure. Loved the southern dialect. Although it takes place in the 1950's south, racial tension is present but takes a backseat to the main theme of the sisters' journey. Written in a very easy-to-read manner that's engaging and entertaining with a little touch of magic.
