Sybil Ludington: Revolutionary War Rider (Based on a True Stories Series) by E.F. Abbott (AKA Karen Young) -no

Abbott, EF (Karen Young) Sybil Ludington: Revolutionary War Rider (Based on a True Stories Series), 180 pages.  Macmillion , 2016.  $15.99.  Content: Language: G (0 swears) Mature Content: PG Violence: G
Sixteen year old Sybil Luddington and her family are colonists in the American colonies. Many of the colonists want to rebel against  British control, and Sybils family is a part of that, putting them in danger. When the alarm is called, Sybil has to step up to help her family and her country.
Unlike the rest of the series, this book sort of just jumped right into some heavy politics and plot with little explanation.  I was confused for the first quarter of the book and I think it would off putting enough for elementary readers to set this book aside, but middle schoolers might persist. There was a possible attack from a man at night, which sort of borders the line of inappropriate for elementary. My least favorite in the series. This series is actually written each by different authors, after reading I noticed this was an author whose style I have disliked in the past, which makes sense. The rest of the series is great!
