This is such a good book! I couldnt put it down. It is kinda like 'a little princess' by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Any one who loves this book should read that. I wish there was a second book.

Lots of description makes this book hard to read early on. Maia is one of those Anne-of-Green-Gables types who can do no wrong and win everybody's hearts, which is kind of annoying. What happens (the plot, basically) makes up for that.
