2012 book 211

Dodie Smith's I Capture the Castle
This is one of those books I've been meaning to read for years, and was finally spurred to do so by Christina telling me she was sure I'd like it. And I did! It's the story of a teenage girl growing up with her somewhat eccentric British family in a falling-apart castle in the 1930s, and what happens when the new young estate owners come to town (don't worry, Smith makes all the Jane Austen references for you). I think I liked how things wrapped up; I might have to think about this one for a little while. A-.
