2010 Award
( by Patricia Reilly Giff, Random House $15.99 Score: )

As always, Patricia Reilly Giff has created a cast of characters you care about from the opening pages of this dual story that is set in modern day America and America at the start of the Revolutionary War. Beautifully crafted, the chapters alternate between Elizabeth, the present day girl who, discovers the story of Zee, the girl in a drawing, who lived through the fight for America's freedom. Although there is a bit of repetition in establishing Zee's careless ways, the story is full of suspense as well as tenderness. Historic fiction by a master storyteller. 8 & up.
