4 of 5 Detailed and Believable September 26, 2022
Reviewer: Bethany Kunz from Texas  
A coming-of-age story set in Philadelphia after the birth of the United States. The author provides plenty of details about the time period and captures the reader's attention with believable characters. A good read for the Early American History student.
