Description

When Trina and her father move into an abandoned wreck of a mansion called Goldenrod, Trina thinks her life is finally coming together. She can put down roots at last. Maybe she'll even have a best friend! But the kids at school make fun of her, and it seems like Goldenrod itself is haunted.

Charming and imaginative.

When I was an 8 to 12 year old girl, I would have LOVED this book. I still loved it and I am much, much older than that! The whole idea of a hidden room, a beautiful doll house and a talking doll is just irresistible.

I was enchanted with this story. I thought that the circumstances surrounding Trina's life were realistic for middle school readers and the solutions to conflict and problems had solid believable solutions and endings.
