Read full description of the books Happy Birthday Samantha!: A Springtime Story:This was one of my least favorite American Girl books, mostly because the story is a discordant package of mini-stories that are rather boring. Samantha has a princess birthday party rather, almost, sort of, kind of ruined by sabotaged ice cream. Samantha the rich Victorian beauty gets to go to the rich and beautiful side of New York. Samantha's mischevious cousins lose her puppy, and in the end learn not to be so mischevious. Samantha finally gets non-sabotaged ice cream.
The clashing of Aunt Cornelia and Grandmary over women's suffrage is the book's saving grace, and could have been expanded into a much more central thread. Grandmary's quick conversion from a crotchety, Aunt-Polly-like traditionalist into one of Cornelia's supporters is significant but not very convincing or well divulged.
