    I suppose I think of this book as the Downton Abbey of the West Coast. It's filled with clearly defined, three-dimensional characters dealing with problems of society and perception, the type of problems that I think many of us would just scoff at in today's world. However, Pearson does a good job of emphasizing how real these problems are in the 1930s and shows a world in flux. I really came to love the character of Noni, especially as she goes through such a profound shift in the book. She is I suppose I think of this book as the Downton Abbey of the West Coast.

Perhaps everything gets tied up a little too nicely at the end, but I actually found this to be very satisfying, and what this particular story required.

    A new subject, unwed pregnancies, but still useful in today's climate of a lack of sexual education. Good follow up to 'The Whole Truth' A new subject, unwed pregnancies, but still useful in today's climate of a lack of sexual education. Good follow up to 'The Whole Truth'

    This is the sequel of another truly wonderful book, Polly faces the difficulties of going of to boarding school and the stress of worrying about a Possible world war 2. Pearson is truly talented in her abilities to narrate as though she was a child and to create a satisPhying ending. I highly recommend this book to all ages and hoPe that you like it as much as I did i give it an 11 out of ten!

    Kit Pearson has captivated me once again with the story of Polly and Maud. I find her coming-of-age stories to be an accurate representation of the feelings that come along with the onset of adulthood and it was fascinating to revisit the sisters a little later in their lives. In this particular story, Polly and her scattered family confronts the prejudice that is ingrained into the West Coast society of the 1930's. It was masterfully done and Nona's change of heart left me in tears. The optimis Kit Pearson has captivated me once again with the story of Polly and Maud.

The optimism of Kit Pearson's characters leaves me aching at the reality of how ones stubbornness has the ability the break apart families. A little idealistic but nevertheless a welcome read.

    very good coming of age story, with a few more big, not often talked about issues. I really liked how realistically things were handled, esp (Polly's) complicated feelings. I liked the epilogue but do fell it detracted a bit from the story; A whole other book could've been made of it, and instead it was wrapped up neatly in one page. Nevertheless, Kit Pearson remains one of my favorite children's authors:) very good coming of age story, with a few more big, not often talked about issues.

    I figured I'd grab the sequel having found "The Whole Truth". I didn't enjoy this work quite as much because I felt like the epilogue made everything TOO perfect. But it was still an engaging story, and a look at how society treated girls/women in the '30's (and to a degree even today). If you liked "The Daring Game" you might like this since the majority of the work takes place in a boarding school (complete with a witch of a headmistress). Overall another excellent work by Ms. Pearson. I figured I'd grab the sequel having found "The Whole Truth".

    I was a little disappointed with this. I loved The Whole Truth, and was so excited to read the sequel but for me the story fell sort of flat. Worth reading if you want to see what happens to Polly and Maud but not nearly as good as the first. This is the only one of Pearson's book I didn't love. I was a little disappointed with this.

    Wow, Kit Pearson completely changed my view of Noni and Maud! This book is strangely surreal after watching The Drop Box, but is still very powerful and thought-provoking

    Just like the first book in the set it was a wonderful read. Fabulous characters and story of a family.The prairies and BC in the 30's was so interesting.I wish there were more books in the set.

    Is it a little predictable? Sure. Did I care? I did not.

    Reading Kit Pearson reminds me of my youth...so, even though I predicted all the plot twists, I have to acknowledge the quality writing and the memories this book brings flooding back.

    Great follow-up to the first book "The Whole Truth". A bit predictable, but likely not to a young reader. Loved the time period issues that were dealt with.

    Not as good as the first. Pretty predictable. Both girls started to grate on me. But, I am not thirteen anymore.

    Like I said about the first book, twists where they're unexpected. Catcher you off guard. Good book! Like I said about the first book, twists where they're unexpected. Catcher you off guard. Good book!
