Unique and touching! I really enjoyed this book!
I found Claudia as amusing as ever. As a child, I understood her need to be Appreciated and Different in the face of a dull, unappreciative family! Her selfish, bossy moments resonated -- being the bossy older sister of a younger brother myself. While the story occassionally betrays itself as specifically time bound, I think that the mystery of the staute and the growth of Claudia's and Jamie's characters supercede that. I would wholeheartedly "shelftalk" it to children in the library!
