Publisher Comments:

Polly Milton never questions the way she is until she visits her cousins in the city. Her cousin Fanny looks too glamorous to be Polly's age, and wouldn't be caught dead playing in the snow. Will Polly ever learn to be like the other girls? And does she even want to? Sometimes being old-fashioned is right in style.

This is a wonderful, charming, inspiring, and truly heartwarming book. The characters come to life and are easy to love, and there is much wisdom to be found within the book's pages. The language and customs of Boston in the late 1800's are also enjoyable and interesting to absorb, simply as they are revealed during the telling of the tale.

I have cherished this book since I was a child, and have returned to read it again and again throughout the years...it continues to be one of my all-time favorite books.

Highly recommended!! Enjoy! :)
