The Ever-After Bird

The Ever-After Bird (Great Episodes) The Ever-After Bird by Ann Rinaldi

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really like Ann Rinaldi books. She does such a great job with historical fiction, making it very palatable for young people.

This story takes place before the Civil War. Cece, a thirteen year-old girl, does not understand or care about the Abolitionist Movement.

When her father is murdered because of his Aboltionist views, Cece's world is turned around. She gets to travel through the South, to witness slavery firsthand.

Once again, Rinaldi does not write "down" to her young readers. This is a great way to help teach about the Abolitionists, while also telling a story with adventure, danger, and romance.
