Story Rating: *****
Cover Rating: A
The Dear America series encompasses the books that once made me fall in love with the fictional dairy book format. This one tells the story of a young girl during the American revolutionary war. It is a heart-breaking story of change, despair, and hope during the late 1700’s, as told through the eyes of a young girl – which is a way that people do not often get to experience history. I highly recommend this book for all preteens and teenagers, as it is both a historically sound book and one that allows people of that age a glimpse into the history books in a way that is personal for them.
The cover is eye-catching and offers an accurate description of what readers should expect to find within the story.
