I Capture the Castle By: Dodie Smith
I loved this book for the characters in it. They were fun to read about and the story made you feel like you were right there with them. You wanted her father to snap out of his problem, you felt Cassandras pain as her and her sisters were so trying to make everything work even though they were poor. An endearing story of a youth's life. Also knowing this book was first published in 1948 made this book a timeless classic to me as it was still a great read today that made sense in this world too.
There is also a movie that was made in 2003 with the same title. I saw that too and it was pretty good, I always like the books better.
I borrowed this book from the public library.
