    I read this book as a youngin and I still read it now every so often It never gets old The emotions are always there and they adventure are always there This is a book you should really get into

    It was really good I liked that Sally Biddle was back, not because I actually like her as a person, but because she brought certain emotions with her that the other two books didn t have It was, as all the other books from Jennifer Holm, really well written, and the characters were awesome I only gave it four stars though, because the way all of Janes friends apologised to her was a little bit too unrealistic for me.

    I m not overly critical when it comes to books I was entertained There were parts I liked and parts I didn t, but overall it was a nice easy read that I enjoyed.

    n enjoyable read, like the other books, but a the characters were all acting a little too stupid for me and b in the end the conflict was resolved a little too quickly But Boston Jane is a great character although considering what she s accomplished already her behavior here was a little out of character or rather uneven and this was definitely fun.

    A wonderful conclusion to the trilogy Must remember these when asked for good historical fiction.

    This was the third and final in the Boston Jane series I greatly enjoyed the first and second books The third book made me angry Jane had a nemesis in the first book, who showed up with her rich family in this third book She immediately made Jane s life miserable, lied to everyone about Jane, and her family was sneaky and underhanded in trying to take over the town.All of the people who had known Jane for years became infatuated with Sally and how wonderful she was They immediately believed This was the third and final in the Boston Jane series I greatly enjoyed the first and second books The third book made me angry Jane had a nemesis in the first book, who showed up with her rich family in this third book She immediately made Jane s life miserable, lied to everyone about Jane, and her family was sneaky and underhanded in trying to take over the town.All of the people who had known Jane for years became infatuated with Sally and how wonderful she was They immediately believed her lies about Jane, even though they had no reason to Jane being vindicated was a fluke.I felt that the third book was written to cause spiteful drama in Jane s life I liked the first two books because they included life drama losing the boat, falling through the roof of the new home, cooking drama The same type of happenings could have occured in the third book, but instead the author just made everyone horrible
