Oh my heavens!!! I loved this book! I'm going to admit that I didn't think I would like it so I put off reading it. I have stared guiltily at for the last few weeks but I finally started it and couldn't put it down. I read it in one sitting. I fell in love with Kate and Cecy and their adventures are too funny! And the way the book was told (through letters) was genius! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes magic and regency England! It's definitely now one of my favorites by Patricia Wrede. I can't wait to read the next two books!
