I really love this book because it is about a lonely girl who learns to make friends and overcome her struggles.

Inside this book is the following description:
"Brooding, lonely Anna, a foster-child, goes to stay with a kind Norfolk couple. There, like something in her memory, she finds the old house backing on to the creek. But it is the girl at the window who haunts her ... Marnie, headstrong, often infuriating and somehow just as elusive when the two meet as she had been at the window. Marnie becomes Anna's perfect friend, and although she finally vanishes for good, she has helped Anna make real friends.

"This is a thrilling, intense story, part mystery, part adventure, part fantasy, and will appeal particularly to girls of eleven and upward."

Very rarely do I stumble across a book that leaves me think about it for days after I've finished it. I initially read the book because of the Studio Ghibli film that has been adapted from it. But now I think I've fallen in love with the book more so than the movie.
The book chronicles a young girl named Anna's summer while away from her foster parents and the city.
I don't want to give away too much but Anna meets a young girl named Marnie who lives in the seemingly abandoned Marsh house.
Anna has a summer of adventure and discovery that will enthrall readers of all ages.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a quick summer read.

Subtle, thought provoking, old fashioned, emotional, compassionate, detailed without being overwritten. You don't find many books like it. Unfortunately not many publishers in the U.S. think they can make money from them.

First I saw the movie, which I really liked and made me cry a little towards the end and made want to read the book too. The book didn't disappoint and was just as good as the movie. 5 Stars!!

After seeing a trailer for Studio Ghibli's new movie based on this book I was intrigued. I have to say this was one of the best books I've ever read and hope my children enjoy it as much as I did. I don't want to discuss the plot too much lest I give away the ending. Basically it's about a young girl in her awkward years who feels alone and unloved who goes through a transformation with the help of a special friend. I especially think my daughters are going to love this book.

I read this book when I was a child and it was written in 1967, so you can imagine it was some time ago. The haunting beauty of this book has stayed with me for all these years. I am SO looking forward to the new release, and to the anime version being made in Japan. This is a wonderful book for any child, but especially a girl of age ten or so. Just beautiful.
