This book confused me a little. Firstly, I have no idea what year this book is meant to be set in. The fact that Nellie and Ernie travel by cart and that a car is a rare sight suggests that the book is set in the past, but there is no mention of a date anywhere in this book. To begin with, I liked Ernie. She seemed like a fun, loving girl. By the end, I hated her as much as I did Sonny. I liked Nellie and Steve, but my absolute favorite character was Oakley, who seemed so kind and caring. I Recommend this book to people wanting something to read, but I would've liked to know what year it was set in.
