Her most recent books include The Treasures of Weatherby, The Bronze Pen, William S. and the Great Escape, and William’s Midsummer Dreams. She lives in Mill Valley, California. What it felt like was a warning, a warning to expect some drastic differences when Amanda joined the Stanley family. Some of the specific clues came from little things Molly or David’s dad had let slip, but the strongest one came from one particular facial expression. The expression had been on Amanda’s face the only time David had ever met her.

This was purchased as gift for my niece who turned 11. She's a reader. When I was about her age I LIVED at my school's library.. The librarian was my idol I read everything I could get my hands on by Zilpha Keatley Snyder; particularly relating to her characters for being "different" and supernaturally inclined. The librarian arranged for me to travel with her (quite a distance I remember) to meet Ms. Snyder at a luncheon after she was presented an award...it was the best day of my life. I was thrilled to find this book, still popular with children and still in print.

Loved it when I first read it, and love it just the same on rereading as an adult. A great book about blending families from the children's point of view, as well as a not scary brush with the supernatural. A total classic.

My daughter loved this. By the same author of "Black and Blue Magic" --- one of my favorite books growing up

I thought this book was a decent. The cover caught my eye and made me want to read it. It was a little hard at the beginning to understand because there are so many step-sisters. Upon reading further into the story it was easier to understand. I liked how the author described the house where the step-sisters lived. It was very entertaining, I give it 4 stars.

I read this book to see if I felt comfortable with my daughter reading it. I wasn't sure I would be comfortable, because it delves a little into the occult. To my surprise, I am happy with the book. It does have a bit of a ghost story woven through through it. But The child who is "delving" into the occult is a troubled child who is only pretending to do it and faking a haunting to cause problems for her Mom and new step family. The main character is a loving and patient older brother, and the story promotes good family values.

love these books
Xangeo
Up enjoyed reading this book, and there were lots of funny parts which is always good in a book. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five, was because the ending wasn't very satisfying. Other than that it was a very great book which I would recommend.
When this book was recommended to me I expected it to be more of a ghost story but it's actually more about family. It is a good read for kids though.
