A Long Time Ago TodayDilly’s mother died when Dilly was 6. Now that she’s 12, Dilly has few memories of her own about her mother. What she does have is a life full of “traditions” that are being kept to honor her mother’s memory. Dilly is tired of doing things to make her mother happy. When Dilly learns about a letter that her mother wrote to her for Dilly to read when she was older, Dilly decides to find the letter and tear it up, before she can read any more decrees from her mother. This was a good book, but nothing spectacular.
