A fun and exciting story for young readers!
"...The events in the book are very fast-paced - maybe too fast. It's a good size for a middle grade novella, but as an adult I would love to see the story more fleshed out. Everything just seems to unfold much too quickly to be realistic, I think. Again, though, that's just coming from the perspective of an adult. I don't remember my exact thoughts as a child reading this, but since I kept the book on my shelves, I think it's safe to say I liked the book just fine. It's a fun mystery about a young girl in a new and exotic city, and in 1814 there was not only danger of invasion from the British, but also danger of pirates! The famous Jean Lafitte actually plays rather a significant part in Elisabet's story, as a matter of fact, which makes it all the more exciting and mysterious..."

Only the suspence will keep you reading
This book was okay, but not the best book to kick the seris off with. I truely enjoyed it, and it was well written, but my type of book. It had alot of suspence but not enough excitement for a mystery book. The suspence was the only thing that kept me reading, but that's just me talking. Anyways this book is great for ages 10-12. It gets them into American history. The best part is for those who love this book and want more there are 16 more to read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
