Flora is a girl I so wish I'd met when I was a pre-teen. She's brave, she's bold, her mother is the head of the army, her father is rather wimpy, her best friend worries more about his appearance than any girl--and Flora never for a second has a doubt that she can do anything she wants! She has adventures, she faces dangers, she thinks for herself. I am long past my teen-aged years, but I'm collecting these books in hopes of either reading them to my grandchildren or passing them along to friends with pre-teen daughters. Ah, Flora--a Girl of Spirit indeed. If you miss Harry Potter, then you must meet Flora!

It could have been much better--perhaps even as a short story--and I frankly do not understand what the fuss is about.
