The Young Visiters

By Daisy Ashford

A nine-year old wrote it! Yes, it's true. The publishers decided to leave all the misspellings in place, and not correct the punctuation (or lack thereof). I thought it was a shame they did that. It made it harder for me to read it without any commas. I liked the story and thought it was both obvious and unbelievable that a nine year old wrote it. Obvious because of the childish look at the life of adults; unbelievable, because of the amazingly sober insight she had into the social lives and aspirations of adults.
