    “Some characters become your friends for life. That’s how it was for me with Betsy-Tacy.” —Judy BlumeWith a Foreword by Laura LippmanThese two books in Maud Hart Lovelace’s beloved Betsy-Tacy series: Heaven to Betsy and Betsy in Spite of Herself see Betsy and Tacy start high school in Deep Valley, Minnesota. Featuring a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman and the original cover art from Heaven to Betsy. “I re-read these books every year, marveling at how a world so quaint - Shirtwaists! Pompadours! Merry Widow hats! - can feature a heroine who is undeniably modern.” — Laura Lippman“There are three authors whose body of work I have re-read more than once over my adult life: Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and Maud Hart Lovelace.” — Anna Quindlen “Slipping into a Betsy book is like slipping into a favorite pair of well-worn slippers: It’s always a pleasure to live in Betsy’s world for a little while, to experience her simple joys, but also her (thankfully short-lived) sorrows.” — Meg Cabot
