Fiction-Toliver’s Secret by Wood Brady–Is that a boy, wait. No. It’s a girl. Back in the days of Paul Revere and George Washington,patriots were all over the place, and came in many shapes and sizes. When a young girl’s grandfather hurts his leg and can’t deliver an important message, he recruits his granddaughter for the mission. An awesome book. The author makes the character’s come to life, and shows you both sides of the war. Patriot and English. Perfect book to curl up in a chair and read.
Fiction-Angel on the Square by Gloria Whelan– What do tall fuzzy cylinder shaped hats, lots of snow, and a ballet remind you of? That’s right, Russia. This story is about the struggles of the Tsar to keep the country running. A young girl’s mother becomes a lady-in-waiting for the Empress of Russia, and they end up living with the Tsar and his family. But when the girl’s cousin shows how much poverty and cruelty there is in the lower class, she struggles to balance her feelings towards the Tsar. Loyalty and rebellion. She can’t decide. It starts out sounding like a different person’s view of Anastasia, but as you read in, you will find it is completely different. An amazing book I will definitely read again.
