Ms. Rinehart seems to find a different line to follow with every book she writes. I was not expecting Bab to be what it is at all. First of all, it was the first Rinehart book I had ever read and I was beginning to think my Kindle was having a bad day or Ms. Rinehart was incapable of spelling anything. In actuality, I would say she is a very talented speller, besides being a very talented writer. Anyone who could mis-spell that many words and still be understood is a genius! Bab is a fun book to read. This young lady cannot seem to stay out of trouble no matter how much she tries. There is a mild mystery to her madness, but don't expect murder and mayhem.
