    I read this book a long time ago but I remember liking it Libby had what seemed like an idyllic private life a rich imagination big beautiful house a treehouse loving and intellectual parents She struggled at school in ways I could identify with The other children were well drawn enough that they seemed like people It also shared some pretty strong lessons in writing and peer review that have stuck with me

Libby is sent to public school to be socialized after years of being educated at homeAn honest forthright picture of these classmates tumed. I picked up a copy of this after asking all my friends to recommend books that have homeschooled characters in them I knew nothing else about the book and it turned out I was getting into something a bit darker than I expectedI enjoyed the story even if it was somewhat predictable and stereotyped a bunch of misfits turn out to be complicated than they appear on the surface and become friends However there were several problemsFirst the portrayal of homeschooling was good but the portrayal of a homeschooled kid s social life was not Libby was interested enthusiastic and well educated But before starting school she apparently had no friends outside her family That s just unrealistic she should have had friends from her neighborhood from clubs and activities ballet class and maybe from homeschool groups as well though I guess those were rare in the 1980s than they are today Still her mother s insistence that Libby go to school to become socialized is one of the most stereotypical arguments against homeschooling and it bothered me that by the end Libby agreed with her even after being bullied and educationally stunted at schoolSecond the story of GG and his father was tied up too pat That was an extremely serious and dangerous situation and it seemed to me that six weeks at an alcohol rehab facility was not going to solve the problems there Much of the abuse seemed premeditated leaving the boy home alone until after midnight setting up tasks for him to do that he was going to fail at to justify later physical violence not just random alcohol fueled rage Putting GG back with his father and a belief that everything was going to be better now was really upsetting to me
