I've read it too many times to count. It's one of the first books, other than The Babysitters Club, that I actual liked. It is historical fiction and a mystery in most of her books and I love horror and history in general. Also a gothic romance. With many things going on in the books, is like me, I don't have a big talent or calling, plus I love everything and want to do it all. The girl in the book is finding out all her family's secrets and I feel like mine has some or I want to have some. She is taken to foreign places and have different lives, while living hers. Opals are a big part of the book. I love how they can change at every angle and look different every time you look at them. My mother's birthstone. I also don't fit into my family like this girl, when I first read it I didn't like my parents, but I was also a teenager.
