    Oh no! How can there be a traitor in Caroline’s family shipyard?? I love the use of that word in the title… I think it will encourage interesting discussion for readers young and old as this word may not be familiar to younger readers. I can’t wait to read it!

  15. Molly W. Says:

    Oh how exciting! Thanks for this chance to win! I just love Caroline’s time period!

  16. Karen Thurber Says:

    I once wanted to be a writer and discovered how hard it is! I admire your skill and persistence in bringing great books to publication readiness. I’d love to win an autographed copy. I think the American Girl focus on women and girls in history is truly wonderful. I wish such books had been available when I was a kid. Our history classes focused exclusively on the deeds of adult men in wars, world exploration, and government. I remember a blur of “killing and conquering” and developed a strong dislike of history that persisted for many years. I love the many forms that AG is now using, from the royal diaries to the mysteries and more.
    Thanks for all your contributions to sharing history with girls!


  17. Bridget Says:
