Teacher: Is it difficult for you to do things simultaneously?
Student: Yes, particularly when doing things in English.
Teacher: Can I put that as a joke in my blog?
Student: Oh sorry? What did you say? I just replied to a message in English. Sorry.
I had hoped to have five wives but I ended up having only one.

It was a good book, don’t get me wrong and Alcott still managed to capture my heart with her literary wit. Is it as memorable as Little Women , or Jo’s Boys ? No. The stories in the book reminded me of the characters in the aforementioned texts but that was it. Perhaps it was because there were a number of stories compiled in one book, but those didn’t move me nor care about the characters as much as when the kids and the teachers were together. All I realized was to be a Modern Cinderella, one has to be as loyal and hardworking as Nan, as bright and witty as Debbie, and as caring and pure as Nelly.
I also have to admit that Dora’s story was cute.
I need to have lots of dreams because I barely have time to enjoy them.

I’m still praying to gods and waiting for them to accept my sacrifice before I can make a substantial review. All I know is Shadow’s character has been developed quite well and how it ends does not justify it… or probably because I have missed something.
It is, however, a book I definitely will read again. There is something about Mr. Wednesday I love.
