I greatly enjoyed the beginning of this book - I was intrigued by the history lesson and felt like I was making up for the things I missed in grade school. MacDonald has mastered writing from a child's perspective, and it is a delight to shadow Madeline. When pedophilia became a prominent theme and it was immediately obvious it would not be dealt with, I stopped reading. I found a great summary that offered closure for me, and I was glad that I stopped reading when I did. If you are reading the book and struggling as I did, please consider reading: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2003/oct/11/featuresreviews.guardianreview11
