Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
With Hope's father away fighting the British and her brother Ethan gone to find him and care for him, Hope, her mother, and her baby sister must take care of themselves. Forced to board a group of filthy, often drunk British soldiers, Hope and her mother look forward to the time when their family can be together again, though reports of the difficulties facing the colonial army at Valley Forge make them fear for Hope's father's safety. Hope is saddened by the separation between her and her best friend Polly, whose family is loyal to England. Mixing historical events with the details of Hope's daily life, this third installment of the "Hope's Revolutionary War Diary" is a simple portrait of a young girl in Philadelphia during the American Revolution that will please fans of the "My America" series. An endnote provides a more detailed look at the progress of the war in early 1778. 2004, Scholastic, Ages 7 to 10.

    A book i read

    I think this book taight me a lot about history. I really enjoyed learning about how they lived back then without all of the technology we have today. I learned how scary it could be if your dad and brother were both away at war and you were waiting at home with the rest of your family. I learned how close at heart people kept their families back then. <BR/><BR/> I really liked her writing style of the book being in diary entries. It really makes you feel like you are back there with them experiencing the same thing. I think it was really important to have good friens you can count on. I would reccomend this book to anyone who likes a little adventure and learning about history at the same time.
