    Very good book! I Loved it!

    I very much injoyed reading this book. All of Patricia Reilly Giff's books that I have read were AMAZING and very well thought out. This one I think is my favorite because it sort of tells a story from the past while still telling the story of how Elizabeth finds out about her grandmother (who is said to be much like her). The story seemed to get better and better as i kept reading but it was never boring. I deffinetely recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read!

    Reviewed by Sally Kruger aka "Readingjunky" for Teens Read Too

    When Elizabeth's father tells her he will be traveling to Australia to sell his wood carvings, she thinks it means she'll have to stay with Mrs. Eldridge and endure her overweight bulldog and his bad breath. She's in for a surprise. Father says Elizabeth will be staying with her Aunt Libby, her mother's sister. Staying with Libby means living with someone she doesn't even know and going to a new school where she doesn't have any friends. All Father says is it is time Elizabeth learned about her mother's side of the family. Libby makes Elizabeth feel as welcome as possible. The house is awfully quiet and her aunt's cooking is horrible, but when Libby shows Elizabeth to the room she'll be using while she visits, everything feels a bit better. The room belonged to Elizabeth's mother when she was a girl. There's a handmade quilt on the bed and a cozy chair by the window perfect for snuggling up in with a good book. It doesn't take long for Elizabeth to discover the faded sketch of a young girl hanging in the hall. It is amazing how much the girl resembles her. Libby tells Elizabeth that the girl's name was Eliza "Zee," and she lived during the Revolutionary War. Elizabeth is filled with questions about this mysterious girl from the past, and what follows is a fascinating journey into her family history. Author Patricia Reilly Giff tells the stories of modern-day Elizabeth and 18th-century Zee through alternating chapters. Elizabeth learns not only about the mother she lost years ago, but also about her family's place in history. Readers also hear Zee's story as she fights for survival during a time of war that separated families and tore apart lives. Giff's gift for writing historical fiction is put to excellent use in STORYTELLER as she bridges from past to present to connect the story of two young girls.

    Loved it!

    Especially loved it when you would switch from one girl to the other, leaving me in suspense. I love suspense.

    True Revenge ---- Prolouge

    A small ray of light shone through my windows. Ughh. I thouhh, not wanting to get up. Eowyn! I heard my mother call. I tossed the covers off me. Yes!? I called down. Me and your father are heading out. Well be back tonight. She said. Ok! I called back. I heard the door shut after a few minutes. I slipped back under my covers and fell back asleep. When i woke up it was darker. I walked downstairs and saw my parents sitting in deep conversation. My dad saw me first. Hello Wynny! He says, using my nickname. My mom just hands me a plate. Serve yourself. She gestures to the kitchen. I grinned and pulled out the salad, fruit, and chicken. When i had gotten what i wanted, including a slice of pie, and had eaten it, a rejoined my parents. As i sat there was a loud banging then the sound of glass shattering. My parents looked at each other feafully then at me. Wynny, hide! My dad yelled. The next minutes were a blur. The man with the scar, my dad, my mom, blood. Then silence. Broken by the soft sh of a man. I was crying. Warm kind arms picked me up and carried me away. Away from my dead parents. Away from the blood. The blood. I panicked and fell from the mans arms. Thats when the world went black. But thats not the end, its only a memory, for you see, this is only the beginning.
