Emma's River by Alison Hart


Hart, Alison Emma's River, 142 pgs. Peachtree, 2010. Language - G, Sexual Content - G; Violence - G; Emma, a ten-year-old, and her mom are going up the Mississippi on a steamboat to meet up with her dad so they can all move to California together in the year 1852. While on the boat Emma breaks the rules and becomes friends with a stowaway, what could go wrong? This book was fun to read, but there were a few parts that bored me. I really like Emma's will for adventure and strong determination, though. EL, MS - OPTIONAL. Reviewer: CCH
