Tori, March 24, 2010 (view all comments by Tori)
This has to be my favorite sorta-girly, sorta-old school book of all time. It's got hot boys, high romance, and more than enough eccentricity. A Gossip-girl for the vintagely minded, if you want to stretch it even further.

Perhaps I'm not extolling the virtues of this novel properly; you will fall in love, feel like teenage crap, and overflow with hope right along with Cassandra. You will root for her, cry with her, and miss her when the last page is turned. And years laters, when you are older and more acquainted with heartbreak, you will come back to her like she's an old friend.

In an age of rubbish tween lit and vampire sexy trash, I Capture the Castle appeals for its simplicity, its wisdom, and its charm. If I ever have a daughter, I will be putting this into her hands and pray she loves it half as much as I do.
