“A thrill ride excitingly grounded in film history, which is discussed in a fascinating afterword. Best of all is Pearl, a treasure of a protagonist whom readers will love for her candor and bravery as much as for her willingness to admit to her own failings.” —Booklist

This is a fine complement to "Daring Darleen, Queen of the Screen", another recently published book for the same readership that features another spunky, daring girl, and covers the same silent film making territory, although in New Jersey of all places, and with a little more streetwise tone.
I put "wistfully" in the caption because I wonder who will read this. Do kids know what silent films are? Do they recognize all of the settled western/cowboy conventions. I'm in western Colorado. The kids ride and tend horses; they go to rodeos. They do ranch chores. Outside of a few places, though, will stories about that sort of life resonate with a modern reader? I hope so. Because these are very good books, and kids should know about and experience such things.
(Please note that I received a free ecopy of this book without a review requirement, or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)
