Review: GIRL IN BLUE by Ann Rinaldi

Silly Little Mischief reviewed Girl in Blue by Ann Rinaldi for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

This one was a little different than I thought it would be but good nonetheless. Sarah lives with an abusive father. She longs to find a way to leave her home. Upon hearing that the Union army is seeking more soldiers she devises a plan. She will dress like a boy and join the army. Sarah’s story was sad. I didn’t expect to be so sad. Sarah’s home life is miserable. So miserable that joining the army sounds like an escape. She endures so much and manages to keep pushing on even when things are at their worst.
