I loved the main character- Abigail- because she was just like me!
Each book in the series is the fictional diary of a preteen or young teenage girl living during an important time in American history.
She has read the books, and so has her mother, both love the books and plan on purchasing more in the series.

This one was good but not quite as beloved as some of the others by my 7 year old. She was worried it might be too violent when she saw the title but was happy with it overall.Published 19 months ago by tracy dolan
