A Drowned Maiden's Hair is the best melodrama in the world. It's a story with love, friendship, loyalty, death, lies, and magic. You will not get bored with this book. It will literaly keep you reading. I took it out of the library and my m om couldn't get me to do anything else. I didn't even finish my homework. This book will capture you with the first word so beware. I recomend it to anyone ages ten and up.
