The Diary of Trilby Frost

The Diary of Trilby FrostFor what is probably the 30th time, I have re read this book thanks to a public speaking class I was taking We had to convince our audience of something and I decided to convince them that this was the saddest children s book ever written Based on my feedback, they agreed When I was a kid spending my summers in Kansas City with my Oma, Opa and my three aunts, going to the Raytown branch of the Mid Continent Library was a regular gig One summer, I remembered a deliciously depressing book I had read the year before and I wanted to read it again That was the first time I pulled what every librarian knows I asked the librarian to help me find a book that was sad, was a diary of a girl a long time ago , her best friend was an Indian and, wait for it, the cover was yellow She was not amused and so I spent my time going through each and every single book until I found it Years later when I started working part time in the library while in college someone donated an old busted copy so I have one of my very own One sentence summary A heartbreaking Little House on the Prairie tale. I first read this book back in 1979, in middle school It made such an impression on me that I tried for years to remember it and find it My hubs finally found it for me and got an old library copy for me for Christmas a few years back It was every bit as rich and poignant as I remembered The struggle of Trilby to make of herself, to bring some sort of beauty to her life is heart wrenchingthe romance she finds and how it effects Trilby is something that will stay with you.

Mrs Boyd read this book out loud to us when I was in the sixth grade All of the classes would sit in the common area after lunch every day while she read a chapter to us I remember Mrs Boyd crying while trying to read the ending to us I cried with her Took me many, many years to remember, and then find the book again It was just as good as I remembered And just as sad. My journal from this time says I cried at the end. I have been trying to remember the name of this book for years I loved it in elementary school and never forgot the story.
