    Would you like to discover new worlds and kingdoms with just reading a book? Then this book is for you.

The book is about two kids getting away because their parents were killed and their faith is to discover a new kingdom before the bad creatures capture them.

  12. A Book Review
    By Daphne

    Title: Blood on the River: James Town 1607
    Genre: Historical Fiction
    Author: Elisa Carbone
    Library Book: FIC CAR
    Pages: 224
    Year of Publication: 2007

    A young orphan boy is chosen to be a servant to Captain John Smith on his voyage to the Americas. He has to face sickness, starvation and battles with the Indians. Can he survive this strange new world?

    I recommend this book because it is a great adventure story and it is very well written; I could completely imagine what was happening in the story. This book also connects to our unit in Social Studies and helped me understand how difficult it was to live in Colonial America. The main character, Samuel, is 11 years old and I could understand how he thought, felt and reacted to certain situations.
