A Drowned Maiden’s Hair by Laura Amy Schlitz
Everyone wants to be loved by one person or another and Maud Flynn is no different. As an adventurous and naughty orphan girl, Maud backtalks and creates trouble on a day-to-day basis. So when a lovely looking lady called Miss Hyacinth comes to the orphanage and adopts her, Maud is more surprised than anyone. Maud is taken into a lovely home with Hyacinth’s two sisters, Victoria and Judith, who are good to her. Maud finally feels that she is loved and has a family. However, the sisters aren’t normal. They tell Maud that she is to be a secret child. But why? And what secrets are the sisters keeping from her?
This book is a page turner and leaves you in major suspense. Like a graveyard mystery, people are messing with the line between the living and the dead that shouldn’t be messed with. I loved this book because through this journey, Maude discovers herself and how much she is willing to endure to be loved.
I would recommend this book for 13-14 year old’s because of some of the vocabulary and the overall concept of the book. However, I think it could be really great for 12 year old’s as well. Early teenage years would be the perfect age to read this book.
