Well, seeing as it is a bit of a sequel to the more famous Daddy-Long-Legs, it's quite good. A bit disappointing if you've read Daddy-Long-Legs prior to reading this book, however, I think most people would enjoy it.
It does seem to follow the Jean Webster pattern that was laid out in the first book, where everything is horribly chaotic but there's a happy ending at the end.
I actually liked this better than Daddy-Long-Legs as the ending didn't seem quite so obvious although it certainly wasn't unexpected. I like the "modern" woman of the early 1900s and especially enjyed the epistolary nature of the book, making it a perfect choice for reading on DailyLit.
