During six turbulent years in 1934, 17-year-old Cassandra Mortmain keeps a journal, filling three notebooks with sharply funny yet poignant entries about her home, a ruined Suffolk castle, and her eccentric and penniless family. By the time the last diary shuts, there have been great changes in the Mortmain household, not the least of which is that Cassandra is deeply, hopelessly, in love. Illustrations .

    Although I have not finished the book, nor progressed through half of it (since the book is quite thick), I've had a good impression, but I cannot judge the whole book by only reading a small percentage of the book. I will add on to this once I have finished the book. This book is written in the perspective of Cassandra Mortmain, as she writes in her journal on a daily basis.
