Roller Skates

Roller SkatesGoodreads Synopsis:    Growing up in a well-to-do family with strict rules and routines can be tough for a ten-year-old girl who only wants to roller skate. But when Lucinda Wyman's parents go overseas on a trip to Italy and leave her behind in the care of Miss Peters and Miss Nettie in New York City, she suddenly gets all the freedom she wants! Lucinda zips around New York on her roller skates, meeting tons of new friends and having new adventures every day. But Lucinda has no idea what new experiences the city will show her.... Some of which will change her life forever.

My Thoughts:

-    I wanted to like this more, but the execution just wasn't good. 

-    The story could have been really cute, and I liked all the characters well enough, but it was a little slow because of the writing.

-    I wasn't expecting the ending to be sad and somber, but it was. 

-    I love that Lucinda could make friends with anyone, and she did.
