At the beginning a thought it was going to be a boring book, but when i got a little further it started to get interesting. I think that if another student reads this book they are going to recommended to another person.

The book of Sarah Bishop by Scott O'dell is a great book. I don't every read books at all. When I was going through all my books in my room I found this book. I haven't read a book on my own in like 6 years. I started to read it a little and then I just couldn't put it down. I got through the whole book in 2 days. It is an awesome story and a good lesson about the revolutionary war. No matter what Sarah did in the book, it was never wrong, but always the right thing. I hope you get this book and enjoy it as much as I did.

This historical fiction is about a 15 year old orphan named Sarah Bishop and is running away from british soldiers that abused her for burning down a building. If you like long books, Sarah Bishop might (might) be a good book for you.

I read this book in school. Even though my teacher told me to stop reading, I couldn't put it down. The vivide details leave you wanting to read more. It's so exciting, and you feel like one of the charaters. It was definitaly a great book. I'd recomend it to anyone!!!!

This book was one of the greatest books that I have ever read!!! I had to read it over the summer. It was a very inspiring book and tells the life that some people have/had to go through during those times. Everyone should read this book!!!!! I loved it!!!

Sarah Bishop is a young teen girl who lives in the time period of the Revolutionary War. Her father is a soft-spoken Patriot for King George, and her brother somehow became a Tory. Sarah doesn't particularly take either side; she just wants to be far away from the war. As events play out, Sarah is all alone, with only the animals in the woods to be her friends (and some animals are her enemies). She learns to survive somehow by herself, always afraid of the British soldiers coming to take her to prison. Working at a tavern, Quakers, caves, Indians, the Bible, losing everything... How does it all tie together? I found this to be a great read. I realize some will not like the characters who talk about witches putting spells on the town's crops. However, I see the witch trials only from a historical view. I don't mind reading about it, because I know it was something real that took place at the time. All in all, a very good book – for ages 12 and up.

The story plot was good. But the ending was TERRIBLE. She goes to trial?? For witchcraft??? How does this impact  her? When is she going  to stop running from the British? Is it over now? I'm so done with this book

How is talking about a weaker race when this country was founded by the likes of Sarah, we could use more of her kind today
