"I CAPTURE THE CASTLE is an example of the sometimes deft way pop culture dealt with feminist issues in the years before feminism. What's wonderful about it, though, isn't restricted to issues of sex. This coming-of-age novel is too canny to equate the changes and compromises of growing up with the corruption of the world. Smith makes you fall in love with her young heroine's voice, and then every time Cassandra has to confront the fact of people she loves making choices she had never imagined possible, Smith allows her to find the strength to assimilate this new information without growing judgmental or scared."Smith, Dodie is the author of 'I Capture the Castle' with ISBN 9780312316167 and ISBN 031231616X.
