Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful follow-up to Mine For Keeps As a long-time reader of Jean Little, I was surprised to learn there was another novel about the Copeland family, and I was finally able to read it about 11 years after reading Mine For Keeps. I wouldn't call this book a sequel because the focus is on Meg, but it is a great companion novel to Mine For Keeps. This novel is about Meg's relationships with her family and her struggles in school. The novel comes full circle, and by the end, we get to see how much Meg has grown-up from the beginning of the story. She takes full responsibility for her grades and training her dog. She finds a way to connect with her grandmother and stands her ground against her friend Charlotte. This novel never lost the sentiment of Mine For Keeps, but instead expanded on it and taught new lessons. We get an update on all the characters in Mine For Keeps, and Sally gets her moment to shine as the older sister, which I really liked.
