Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Raised to take the place of her dead brother, Carlota de Zubaran can do anything that Carlos could have done. She races her stallion through the California lowlands, dives into shark-infested waters searching for gold, and fights in the battles that rage between the Mexicans and the Americans. At sixteen, she is fearless--and that pleases her father very much.

Yet while Carlota throughly enjoys her freedom, she wants to be more than her father's "son." She wants to be herself, brave and courageous but free to show feelings of tenderness and compassion as well. Her father thinks such feelings are shameful, so Carlota must defy him. That will be the most difficult battle of all.

This is a story about a girl who lived in California a long time ago(as in about 1846). She was brought up like a tom-boy in the place of her dead brother, Carlos. This is an exelent story about how Carlota's struggles to become her own person. I'm 12 yrs. old, Iloved this book, and all other's I've read by Scott O'Dell

Carlota is about a girl who lives in California during the Spanish/American wars. Her father raises her to take the place of her dead son, Carlos. She dives for gold in shark infested waters to help pay for their ranch. Carlota de Zubarán and her father help fight in minor offshoots of the main war and protect their ranch from American invaders. I give this book four stars because it is clearly written, but is boring in some places. I really enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading more Scott O'Dell books.

Carlota is a wonderful story about a Californio family during the rancho period, before California becomes a state. It is a time of change, not only for California, but for Carlota and others living during her time. Descriptive dialogue and events in the book give us an excellent portrayal of the rancho lifestyle and customs. It not only depicts some of the effects of the mission period, but also the events leading up to the U.S. take-over of the Californian territory from Mexico. Carlota displays strength, courage, and wisdom as she leads her family to new ways in a new land. Every fourth grader will have a better understanding of their social studies curriculum through the eyes of this charming young lady, Carlota.

I wanted to like it. I loved the premise and I learned a lot about early California in the beginning of the book. But then the book continues and comes to an abrupt stop.
The narrator is a 16 year old girl who is a tom boy. Okay, then she witnesses her sister's reluctant marriage, then she has feelings for a suitor, okay then what? Nothing and I'm not sure why.
That's what I can't figure out. Why didn't Carlota date anyone? How is it she didn't pursue her own destiny? Why was she smitten by a Yankee (okay Gringo) soldier but nothing developes?
I loved the book "Sing Down the Moon" so I snatched up this book when I saw it.
I'd like to hear any suggestions regarding this subject matter.
