Snow Princess. Pizza Queen. How many contests can there be in Stoneybrook for kids around Karen's age? Side-note: it was kind of neat to see Bill Korman illustrated (he's the boy on the float with Natalie). I thought it was funny how Karen was sooo excited to, like, flip a switch. Also, ALL of Stoneybrook being completely lit up with lights? Pretty but what a waste of electricity!

I re-read this book last night to cool off. The last few days have been like summer here. Today, it is much cooler so lol maybe the book "worked." I did think Karen was a bit forceful at first but I love that she seemed to truly want to help Natalie. I enjoyed reading about their afternoon at the Springers because it is so rare Karen hangs out with anyone outside of Hannie and Nancy. Wow, as I typed that I realized, I don't even think Hannie or Nancy or much mentioned in this book outside of chapter 2--it's mostly Karen and Natalie and also Karen and the Seth situation. Speaking of Seth, I apologize if I have asked this before but did we ever find out what exactly he did in Chicago for 6 months? I understand he was most likely contracted to help with a major project and possibly whoever (individual or business) paid for his relocation expenses. I am a big Seth fan and a few specifics might have been interesting. I did love when Andrew and Karen were having a snack and Seth walked in the door and they (A and K) jumped up and gave him a hug. Seth is a good person and I'm glad he is a part of the Little House family.
I read this one recently and I thought that it was really sweet that Karen was able to help Natalie. I love that the judges liked Natalie's speech over Karen's too. Karen was even a little offended by that too lol.
Plus that scene where Seth drove her and Natalie around town to see what they could write about was really sweet. I wish that we got to see more of Seth in the LS books.
