This is a delightful autobiographical book for kids of all ages, especially upper elementary girls, about two mischievous young girls and their adventures growing up as best friends and co-conspirators in Huntington, West Virginia. My favorite chapter is the one that tells how they disrupted the surveyor’s strings and stakes at a vacant lot near their homes for several nights, until they stopped a building project. The lot is still vacant more than 60 years later! Carter Seaton is the author of two novels and two important non-fiction books: Hippie Homesteaders: Arts, Crafts, Music, and Living on the Land in West Virginia and The Rebel in the Red Jeep: Ken Hechler’s Life in West Virginia Politics.
