Does anyone else out there remember this book?
Zilpha Keatley Snyder's The Changeling ($13) has nothing to do with the Clint Eastwood/Angelina Jolie movie. Nor, despite its young-adult targeted age range, does it have anything to do with vampires or designer wardrobes. It's a wonderful book about one little girl who's not up to her family's standards and another who belongs to the family with the worst reputation in town. They play, worry, and grow up. If you'd like a weekend read about female friendship without trauma-as-trend, try this - it's better than much of what gets classified as adult reading these days.
