i don't know, i thought it was pretty detailed about it. plus karen had to have been very young when they got divorced so she wouldn't remember much about it anyway.
Maybe I missed something big. Agree she was pretty young but all I remember is "we moved because mommy and daddy got divorced" and no other mentions. Like I said, I probably was reading too fast and missed a major part ;D An excuse to reread I guess ;D

I loved this book. I enjoyed reading about Karen's early life and about how she met Hannie and Nancy. The Karen and Seth part was cute and I laughed when Karen was going to bed at the Big House and thought she lost Tickly (her blanket) and insisted that she and Watson go back to the Little House to get it and then as they are about to leave they find Tickly on the floor of the car lol and then she decides to tear Tickly in half and have one half for each house. This book also talked about how Karen got the two stuffed cats, Goosie and Moosie.

^One thing I found odd was that Watson had a key to the Little house. Lisa wasn't there when they arrived. In fact, she was on waiting at the Big house with Moosie or Goosie (I forget which one Karen had first).
The bracelet did not seem expensive to me, but what do I know about good jewelry? We called the article "Charlie's Five Dollar Bracelet".--Karen's Newspaper
^ Agree. I think it's good he has a key in case of emergencies. Lisa should probably have one to the big house, too (but it wouldn't be as necessary since one of the "army" of family members would probably be there ;D) I didn't pick up on the key thing, either, so I must really need to reread this one ;D

I hear you, Greer! We're military so I have to be constantly decluttering and saying "do we need this?" about everything. My poor DH, and the movers, with our books...and since we'll homeschool, it'll only get more so.
