My daughter is 11 years old. She loves to read Secret Sisters. She says that it always gets you at the end and that it's not fair. She can hardly wait for the next book. I like how the stories relate to her age and the meaning that Sandra Byrd gives through the stories. I don't agree with the bible verses though. I believe that the King James Bible is the one and only bible. No matter how old or young you are.
