Another book revieeeeew. Yes. For the next couple months this is what my posts will be. And I don’t mind! This book was a good one!
The story of Meg Pero was quite entertaining. I liked the plotline and the adventures of the grand canyon that came with it.
Things I Liked:
I liked the Captain. I liked his personality. I liked the way he handled things, the way he was determined and confident, and the way he handled his position as a captain.
I liked the plotline. The way the story played out was not too slow but not overly sped through. And the way the time frame was handled was well done.
I also liked the characters. Dot was sweet, although her little fit made no sense. Hank was awesome. Larson and Meadow were adorable and Adams was a character in himself. Pike was like a black bear that needed to be hanged on someone’s wall.
Things I Didn’t Like:
I didn’t mind this story. It was a pretty cliche sort of feeling. Ben. I mean really… that’s a very predictable suitor name. Other then it was a pretty typical Revell read that didn’t blow my mind, it was a lot of fun.
There was no real mature content in the book. There are multiple kisses, not detailed. Meg and Ben are obviously in a “not” relationship and with that comes its own set of rules. Modesty and reputation are discussed in a good way and made me laugh sometimes. There was no bad language. Violence wasn’t too much, although there was mention of two dead bodies, shots fired, blood and broken bones, injuries mentioned, some in minor details.
All in all I did enjoy this particular story. Four Stars!
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and a positive review was not required. If you enjoy a historical fiction genre with a bit of laughter and a lot of thought, this is a good one for you! Suggested ages 15 and up.
Live, Laugh, and Love, girls!
