This is a really charming, if uneven, work of YA; we read it at bedtime. A great small adventure, a good kooky outsider heroine (and supportive father figure), and suprisingly funny. Still reads like a rough draft, but one we liked a lot.

“But it's a child! You're a man!"

"Your powers of observation are formidable," said Charles. "You are a credit to your optician.”
