    1. This was a fun book to read, it took me a while but don't mind that.It was an assigned book for school because we're learning about colonial times and the Revolutionary War.n. I don't mind learning about it over again. The book is about this girl name Maria and her family, they own a print shop, her father usually worked on printing the newspaper each week.

It's got a lot in common with the American Girls books, but this story has both the advantage and disadvantage of being "true": it makes for a less interesting or progressive story but with perhaps more insight into the time. I was surprised to recognize the author from the suspense books I remember from a long, long, time ago: her prose remains u [...]
