"Although I didn't realize it, my troubles began when we moved to Portman Street, and I became a student at the Pearce Academy for Girls, the finest school in the town of Mount Pleasant, according to Father."
The last month and a half I have been sharing lines from the books of Mary Downing Hahn, one of my most favorite childhood authors. Around Halloween I went on a MDH binge after finding her newest book at our school book fair during conferences. I requested a bunch of her books from the library that I hadn't read, due to them being published while I was in college (or later).
Almost done now, just one more to go for the last First Line Friday of 2019 and I am saving the best for last, my most fave of all of Hahn's books. If you are familiar with her work, it will be pretty easy to guess which one is coming up next week.
