So, anyone who's actually read it? Scout the guide dog's in this one. I felt really bad for Andrew in the end. I think Karen left too soon anyway, and should have at least tried out the new school.
Hilarious that she was going to leave a skull and crossbones keep out sign in her room and found a friendly "welcome to my room" one in Chicago. But at least Karen crumpled up her note, that's improvement!
Speaking of notes, loved the ones Hannie and Nancy left on Karen's desks:
Remember. In 1871, Chicago had a big fire. The city burned to the ground. Watch out! This could happen again.
BEWARE! A lot of mean gangsters have lived in Chicago.
"I love pink and gold. I also like to eat." -Julie, Claudia and the Missing Jewels
I felt bad for Karen when at the beginning she couldn't decide whether to stay or to go (though it was obvious from the title that she was moving). It was sweet of Karen's class to give her a good-bye party and I liked Pamela's card (granted it was the only one that we were told what was written on it).
I was surprised to read that Karen and her family drove to Chicago. I guess it must've been cheaper to drive to Chicago than to buy four airline tickets. Also, when they finally got to Chicago, I liked reading about the places they visited since I would like to visit Chicago one day. I wish Karen gave the school a chance. She might've ended up liking like it.

It's fun reading this book. Them going to places, in Chicago.
We went to outside of Chicago. But we didn't do much. Just mostly stayed at hotel. Going to this church building. We did went out to a restaurant to eat. I remember they had stuff animals on the high shelf, in the restaurant.
Karen, only wanted to go. Cause, who else will take care of Andrew, when he got scared? But, spending time in Chicago, she didn't like it. What her parents & step parents should have said, If you don't like living in Chicago, you can lived with your big family back in Stoneybrook.
