Review: 4.5/5 stars
This is another of those classic YA books that I should have read growing up but didn'teven know about. I wish that someone (my mom, a teacher, a friend) had steered me toward some of these wonderful books that I've now found as an adult. I did read some good books as a teenager but I also read a lot of garbage. At least now I can hopefully help my daughters read good books as they grow up. This is a book with a strong female protagonist who does what she knows is right and follows her heart. A great book for young girls (11 and up) that also teaches about early American history. I loved the characters, the story, and message of this book.
Rating: 1.1.1 I can't remember anything objectionable.
