Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The Girlhood Journeys Collection makes a lukewarm debut with these slim novels, set, respectively, in medieval England and Victorian San Francisco; two other novels, one set in Nigeria in 1440 and the other in 1775 Paris, are due for simultaneous release. While the series premise is derivative, the adolescent heroines, if not rendered with particular flair, are credible enough, and plots are suitably dramatic. Juliet retrieves an escaped falcon and discovers why a mysterious horseman has stolen the handkerchief of her best friend; Shannon rescues a Hong Kong orphan from a miserable existence as a slave to a Chinatown merchant. The girls' adventures are slated to continue-unfortunately, each of these two tales reads as a slice of a larger saga rather than a satisfying novel in itself, leaving the reader neither satiated nor, curiously, really hungry for more. The overall flavor is of an American Girls Collection wannabe, with an international reach added; the final page of each volume advertises tie-in dolls from Ertl Collectibles "available where quality toys are sold." However, the books' plots are significantly less compelling and the factual background skimpier than in the Pleasant Company's historical fiction. Ages 7-11. (Oct.)
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6These titles offer glimpses of a period in history through a young girl's eyes. Juliet's story, set in England, illustrates the limited number of choices available to a girl in 1339. Juliet exhibits unheard-of bravery and courage, especially when she rescues a trained peregrine accidentally set free by her younger brother. She envies her best friend, who comes from an upper-class family, but soon discovers that even wealth cannot insure happinessMarguerite's father betroths her to an unknown man. Shannon's story, set in San Francisco in 1880, begins with her family's move to America from Ireland. Deeply homesick, Shannon must recognize that America is now her home. While accompanying her father on a trip to a Chinese-owned pet shop, she observes a crying young girl who mysteriously disappears before Shannon can help her. Exhibiting courage and willfulness, Shannon enlists some of her newfound American friends to come to the girl's rescue. Yes, the plots are fairly predictable, but the books do have suspense, likable characters, and, without a doubt, a ready-made audience in readers of the "American Girls" series (Pleasant).Julie Shatterly, York County Public Library, Rock Hill, SC

    I got this book years ago and I still read it all the time!!!!!!!!

    It's a great book to read when you want something really interesting to read and you don't have much time to read. You're never too old for this book and the others in the series!
