I thought this book was brilliant! Bernheimer is completely honest about the thoughts of an older sister. Though Merry appears to be malicious in her actions (especially toward Ketzia) I think all of us who have sisters or close cousins have done mean things to them which we regret or put in the back of our minds. I absolutely loved the mention of the "Triple C" children's clothing and Merry's fascination and knowledge of various flowers. I would like to know which fairy tale this book most resembles? I thought it was sort of similiar to the three wicked stepsisters (Merry being one of them) and Ketzia being Cinderella? Anyway, just an idea.
