I Capture the Castle

Smith, Dodie

Seventeen-year-old Cassandra and her family live in not-so-genteel poverty in a ramshackle old English castle. Over six turbulent months, Cassandra tries to hone her writing skills, filling three notebooks with sharply funny yet poignant entries which chronicle the great changes that take place within the castle's walls, and her own first descent into love.

A BBC production is planned, to be directed by Tim Fyell of Madame Bovary fame, with Mike Newell as executive producer. An enchanting novel for older children by the author of 101 Dalmatians.
