I really liked this book because it was really interesting how there was almost always something exciting happening in the book. I liked how there were a lot of adventures and there was something exciting at the end of each chapter. I liked Kit the most because I think she was very brave to come to America by herself. I liked how at first she did not fit in with America but later she fit in with America more. One of the characters that changed was Prudence, who is a girl Kit teaches to write and read. Prudence changes because at first sheís really shy and wonít talk at all. But Kit helps her and soon Prudence is asking questions of people and talking to them more. This book made me feel happy because all the characters had a really happy ending. The story made me wonder about what happens at the end of the book.
I recommend this book. Itís a really good book for people who like books about adventure. It is also good for people who want to know more about what life was like in the 17th century. I think this is a good book for readers 9 and up because it has some complicated words and the way they can tell you stuff in the book can get confusing. I think it might interest readers because there are a lot of twists and turns and it has you asking questions throughout the book. Also, the characters are interesting because lots of them change from the beginning of the book to the end. For example, Prudence was really shy at first and later she wasn't as shy. I also think itís cool that the book is based in the 1600s.
