    1. I got this from a used book sale and it was autographed The fortune teller told Naomi that she would die before she turned fourteen Well, obviously this worried Naomi, and to try and avoid this fate, she worked as hard as she could to make herself marriageable, as in the 1930 s, there wasn t much else for a woman to do In the end, with the help of Nurse Sarah Mitchell, she learns that she can make her own fate, have her own voice, and that women could do much than make thin potato peels The old [...]

    2. Hard lives and limited options faced many girls such as Naomi, but she persevered despite her family trying to keep her from rising above them and gaining an education The story is obviously very autobiographical, in fact, the potato peeling story is in the author s biography on her website This book brought to mind The Yearling , for it was a coming of age book that really described a region and era well This book is rather old fashioned now, but for girls who enjoy historical fiction it might [...]

    3. This woman was a friend and an early mentor I decided to buy all of her books and read them in sequence What an interesting experience I love her style clear and age appropriate, but she doesn t talk down to anyone Those that echo her childhood are captivating Those that speak to children in her life are tender All have funny moments, real conflicts, and resolution It was like talking to her again Thank you, Berniece.

    4. I adored this book when I was young and read it over and over Although the book centers around the fact that a fortune teller predicts that Naomi will die before her 14th birthday, it s not actually a dark book Naomi is the youngest daughter in a large, poor family and though not treated particularly well by the rest of her family, she has high spirits and gets into a lot of scrapes.

    5. This is a wonderful book of a young girl s efforts to overcome poverty, ignorance and a terrifying prophecy It s also nice to know that the author, Berniece Rabe, is LDS I met her at a children s literature conference.

    6. Naomi often got into trouble for her daydreaming Cotton country girls were just supposed to work hard and not look farther But not even mom could see inside Naomi s mind Good family story like Little House books, but too slow for me.

    7. I read this book in Grade 7, about the same time I read The Girl Who Owned a City Excellent story and characters, a book I should re read someday
