Great Historical Fiction for Kids!  Feb 18, 2007
This book was a perfect novel to illustrate the perils of war, and the American Revolution for my fifth grade class. I used it as the middle level novel for my American Revolution literature circles. It worked extremely well, and I felt my average readers got as much out of our studies as my advanced readers who were able to read a more challenging novel. I highly recommend this book.

Tolivers secret  Jan 18, 2007
Toliver's Secret
I am not a big fan of historical fiction novels, but there were a few which I enjoyed reading and Tolivers Secret was one of them. What I liked about this book was that there was always somthing going on. My favorite part of the book was when Elen found out that inorder to not let her grandfather down she had to do somthing she was not that comfortable doing. Anyway if you ever need to read a historical fiction novle, Tolivers secret is a book you will definatley a book you will enjoy. Alot of people that I know who have read this book enjoyed it . I will recomend this book to anyone exept people who like boring historical fiction novels.
Toliver's Secret  Jan 18, 2007
"Toliver's Secret" is a book about a young girl named Ellen Toliver, whose grandfather sprained his ankle the day he had to deliver a important message to George Washington in New Jersey. So Ellen delivered the message for her grandfather with a little encouragement.
"Toliver's Secret" is an amazing book, and if you like adventure then this is a good book for you. An example of it is when Ellen has to dress up as a boy and make it through the British lines . A different example is when she had to get out of a farm house or have her secret revealed. Like I said before, it is a great book and almost any one will like it.
Toliver's Secret Book Review  Jan 18, 2007
Toliver's Secret is a book that will have you at the edge of your seat! Ten-year-old Ellen Toliver (the main character) goes on many adventures in this beyond belief historical fiction book. For example,--- Ellen is asked to complete a mission for her grandfather because he is injured the day of the mission. She has to complete this mission so General Washington gets an important message that will change the war.
I give this book a five star review because of the cliffhangers at the end of each chapter that make you want to read forever. Also the great character Ellen that pulls this outstanding, adventurous, amazing, inspiring book together.- I highly recommend this book to any historical fiction lovers.
