My Vicksburg by Ann Rinaldi

Rinaldi, Ann My Vicksburg, 149 p. Harcourt, 2009. $16.00. Content: G. Claire, 13, is hiding with her family in the caves around the city of Vicksburg – except that Pa is off fighting with the South and Landon, her older brother, has joined the Yankee forces as a doctor. During the 1863 siege of her city, Claire’s assumptions of the world will be challenged. I have not been enthralled with Rinaldi’s books of late – this one feels better for an elementary level, because there is just not much here for anyone older. EL – OPTIONAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
