This book has a interesting theme but is poorly spelled and VERY hard to understand. I wish that it was written better so that i would be able to finish it.

Another lovely morality tale by Louisa May Alcott. She clearly was fascinated by the moral, physical, and emotional lives and upbringing of boys and girls as they make the transition from youth to young adulthood. Sweet!

A group and tangled hether and vines wrap around a vine connected to a tree. The entangled mess forms a dome shape shape with a hole at the front. It weighs enough so its touching the ground. And more plant grew into the soil. The dome inst going anywhere. This is the apprentice den.
