Read full description of the books:
I really enjoyed this very short continuation of Addy's story. I found its plot confusing however, there was really two separate plots that could have been separate short stories but were compiled as one storyline. First there was the plot of the kite festival. Addy was creating a kite for it, but Harriet was telling her that hers was better. Then there was the plot of Addy getting offered a position at the Institute for Colored Youth for next school year. The two plots were tied together by Addy's sister Esther and the fact that Esther had nearly ruined Addy's kite, but then ended up helping her go to the I.C.Y. in the end. This was supposed to show Addy learned that she shouldn't be so hard on her little sister when she did something wrong and praise what she did right. The kite event wasn't very exciting when mixed in with such a life altering opportunity for Addy as the I.C.Y. so I feel like placing the kite event in a different short story might have made it more exciting. It was just confusing to have a little detour such as the kite event in a short story with such an important part of the plot as the I.C.Y.
Something I've also noticed is that the short stories and mysteries after the original 6 books often contradict and seem to offer various different ways Addy's story continues.
What really annoyed me though is that Addy's best friend Sarah was completely missing from the story. Addy always goes to her with all of her important news, so she totally would have told her about the invitation to the I.C.Y. Even though Sarah didn't go to school with Addy anymore, she still would have associated with her outside of school, especially on the subject of learning, something they always loved to spend time on and talk about it.
Overall, this story was really good because I really wanted to hear more about the rest of Addy's education at the end of the sixth book, so this satisfied my want. Hearing she'd gone to the I.C.Y. made me very happy. Not a must read though if you're really looking for more of the substance that the rest of the books have.
