Words cannot express how much I LOVE this book I read it as a kid, but it s still so enjoyable to read as an adult 1 the COVER I never really pay much attention to the cover of a book However, this is probably my favorite cover because I love the girl s hair in the picture I wish my hair looked like that 2 it s set on the Oregon Trail The Oregon Trail computer game is one of my favorite games ever so it was fun to see them travel in the book to places that I have visited in the game 3 the charac [...]
A good historical romantic novel, with a really interesting aspect touring actors in the wild west era An enjoyable book, and I give it 3 stars only because it s less my thing than some of Bruce Coville s others.
This was such a good story I can t believe a man wrote this, because there s romance and I love romance in my novels Even though this is a YA novel and they re young, it had everything a reader could ask for I love books that incorporate so much history and information into their novels, the setting is totally realistic and interesting I liked that the guy blushed and got embarrassed from her attention, and I like the trials they went through to be together, the sickness and the journey, and hav [...]
My sister read this and recommended it to me years ago, in middle or high school I remember liking it, and there being some sweet moments in it.I remember there was a play or something in here, and the characters were preparing for it I also remember the main character looking at her feet in the water, and thinking they were pretty, along with the guy s feet, I think Crazy what you remember from books
I still like this book as an adult It was rather different than all the other Bruce Coville books I know and love and I wish he would write like it It s difficult to find historical fiction of this American era that isn t just for kids Young adult is common, and adult seems to be very scarce Like I said before, though, this is still as enjoyable to me as it was when I was a teen The fact of the main characters being a traveling acting troupe who are not always welcome among the other travelers [...]
This book was beautiful I remember it was one of the first love stories I ever read, and it remains to this day, one of the few I actually ever enjoyed My favourite little thing in this book was probably the heart shaped nugget It s a light, heart warming read with a touch of the hardships faced by Americans in the mid 19th century.
Entertaining story It took a while to get going and the development of romance was really short lived the way it was described I think the author still has some things to learn about looking through the eyes of a teenage girlbut that s just my opinion I have yet to read some of his other books.
My sister loaned me this As an old fan of Bruce Coville s magic alien ghost books I wasn t sure if I d love this one nearly as much I went into it with a sort of well, Beth liked it so I ll give it a try kind of attitude.I was frustrated every time I had to put it down I was frustrated when it was over I d like a sequel.I can t wait to share this with Sam in a few years.
I love this book it is my favorite of all time.I love the theatrical elements in it, I also love how its shows how you don t need to be related by blood to be a family It a beautiful stories of adventure, culture and just a hint of romance just to add the icing to the cake.
16 year old Fortune Plunkett faces many challenges on an overland journey to California in 1853 with the acting copmany she inherited from her father Sappy romantic plot lessens the otherwise good historical fiction.
It took a while I almost thought I d give up on it.
One of the first love stories I can really remember reading Loved it, but haven t read it in a really long time Got me hooked into reading and living through the pages of a book.
Not one of Bruce Coville s best efforts, but enjoyable enough if you re a fan.
I read this as a child and just re read it lately
Probably my favorite book as a child teenager My copy is pretty worn out from being read over and over again.
Not too exciting, but would be a good read for 5th or 6th grade girls Cute and clean, with a little cussing.
Okay very light read, some interesting twists, but not very deep.
My aunt gave me this book and its actually pretty good.
I read this book in 4th and 5th grade, and at that time it was one of my favorites It stills holds quite a bit of nostalgia for me.
