Pollyanna Grows Up

by Eleanor Hodgman Porter

This book is a sequel to Pollyanna, by the same author. It is not quite as good. It gets a bit preachy in places (poverty is bad!) and there is a convoluted sub-plot with a boy called Jamie that was a bit contrived. I was dismayed to see Aunt Polly so regress as a character in a way I did not think was fair. This was not a horrible read, but it for sure was not as good as the original.

As our author of the day, Carson talks to us about his writing habits, who Detective Nick Harland really is and why John Kane does such horrible things.
