Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
Rebecca Rubin dreams of being a movie star, but her parents want her to become a teacher when she grows up. Can Rebecca please her parents while still pursuing her own dreams? When Rebecca and Ana play act working in a factory, Rebecca begins to understand that factory jobs trap immigrants in poverty. During a visit to a factory, Rebecca is horrified at the working conditions, but can she help her uncle, cousin, and the other people who are trapped in these terrible working conditions? Can a ten-year-old girl really make a difference in the world? Rebecca decides she has to take a stand during a factory strike, even though it means putting her own life in danger. She gives a passionate speech about workers' rights and does her part to bring about social change in her community. Young readers will enjoy stepping back in time with the intelligent new member of the "American Girl" series, Rebecca Rubin. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.

    Cool:)

    I like this book, but I think it is too much money for an e-book.
    Rebecca books are really cool.
    I read the whole series but Molly is still my favorite history doll and Mckenna is my favorite girl-of-the-year.
