Note: 
The three Platt sisters have adjusted well to America but their parents retain their old world ways. Annie, the youngest sister and narrator of this third book in the trilogy, experiences a turbulent thirteenth year as she struggles for independence and self-knowledge. A summer at camp is a wonderful experience for a girl who loves nature and animals but even there, she encounters prejudice against Jews and also against her best camping friend, a black girl. All of the Platt family members are beautifully developed characters and as the war ends, their emotions and reactions are sympathetically delineated. An outstanding conclusion to an outstanding series.
