This wasn't what I thought it was going to be. A spunky 11 year old girl is sent off to live with her aunt in San Francisco in the 1900s. She's sassy and smart and has no tolerance for illogical thoughts; which unfortunately gets her into trouble. Sent off to stay with her aunt in San Francisco which is an eye-opening experience for her. Slowish start that you don't really mind because of Beth's antics. Halfway through the book is when the earthquake takes place and it is devastating. She tries hard to find her aunt in the turmoil that follows the earthquake. Tearjerker towards the end of the book and I didn't stop crying until the last page.
