I loved Kingsolver's voice and style. The plot was exciting, yet light and interesting. I also loved all of the unique personalities represented by the characters. Turtle was a metaphor for many resilient rebirths, and Taylor's hard-headed stubbornness was nicely accented by Lou Ann's timid determination.
The plot and characters are enticing. The reading level is relatively simple, but the content is precious. Anderson's voice and style remind me of Avi.
The book was mildly interesting from a historical aspect. Otherwise, I found some flaws in the story, and a dragged out, boring plot line.
My mom read this to me when I was younger, and I love the simplicity of the writing style and Harriet's determination.
this is a good rad aloud for 4 or 5 graders. I think that you would probably read it on your own if you where older or the same age
