If you haven’t already, I would recommend reading the two other Book Reviews I’ve written about Felicity’s books:
- Book Review #41: “Love and Loyalty: A Felicity Classic 1”
- Book Review #42: “A Stand for Independence: A Felicity Classic 2”
I think I loved this “Journey Book” more than all the ones I’ve read so far!
I know I’m biased because I live about 45 minutes away from Colonial Williamsburg. Regardless, I love how American Girl has portrayed Williamsburg in the present day, as well as the colonial period.
Our modern girl lives with her dad and grandmother, above her grandmother’s antiques shop. A miniature portrait on a chain catapults her back to 1775, and she meets Felicity and her friends. I loved how the author incorporated the current Williamsburg interpreters into the adventure!
Maybe it was just me (I haven’t counted all of them), but I feel like Felicity’s Journey Book has the most adventures that the reader can choose. It was really cool, but it was part of the reason why it took me longer to read it than the other two volumes.
There wasn’t really anything that I disliked about this book. If you’re looking for adventure, heart-stopping thrills, and an education on colonial times, this is an awesome book to check out!
This reader definitely wants to dive deeper into Colonial Williamsburg and its history. For me, I have no excuse!
5 out of 5 stars.
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
