I Capture the CastleBook - 1999
Capture the Castle tells the story of seventeen-year-old Cassandra and her family, who live in not-so-genteel poverty in a ramshackle old English castle. Here she strives, over six turbulent months, to hone her writing skills. She fills three notebooks with sharply funny yet poignant entries. Her journals candidly chronicle the great changes that take place within the castle's walls, and her own first descent into love. By the time she pens her final entry, she has 'captured the castle' - and the heart of the reader - in one of literature's most enchanting entertainments.

This story about a family living in a ramshackle English castle has my favourite first and last lines. It’s more romantic than I am usually wiling to read, but also wry and clever and imaginative. -- Rachel
