Hey! Before Spring Break, I checked out these 2 books from the library. It turns out they were from American Girl! They are from a series called History Mysteries. The books are about 12 year old girls who are living in different areas and times in American History.
Betrayal at Cross Creek by Kathleen Ernst
12-year old Scottish immigrant, Elsbeth Munroe is caught up in the early Revolutionary War when some patriots start threatening her family to join their cause. Soon her cousins and her Grandfather (whom she lives with) marches off to join the Loyalists in the war while she is left to take care of her grandmother. It's up to Elsbeth to untangle her grandparents' puzzling past to find the real traitor. Could there really be a traitor in her midst?
This book is awesome and it really describes the trouble she faces.
Trouble at Fort La Pointe by Kathleen Ernst
12-year old Suzette is forced to leave in 2 different ways- Ojibwe and French. Her father, a French tradesmen has decided to stay with his family instead of trading furs in other ares in Canada. Having broken his contract, he must pay back his debt by winning the fur-trapping contests. But someone is sabotaging the contest and the blame falls on to Suzette's father. Can Suzette find the thief before its too late?
This book was really good! It helped me learn about Ojibwe culture and French trading in 1723.
They were both really good books- I don't know which one is my favorite! I would definetly recommend them!
