  1. What an interesting series. This series would interest by the middle schoolers and myself as well. I think historical fiction is a good way to teach kids about our history in a way that’s interesting. My kids respond better to history that tells a story than just dates a facts. These books will be memorable because they can relate how history effected these girls in a personal way. We live in North Alabama and my kids have had questions about the civil rights movement and why people thought slavery was OK. They understood when I explain why slavery was bad when I tell them to think about how they would feel to be a slave with no rights or how the civil rights movement helped many by thinking about how they would want the same rights if judged by their color. Nice series I love to read.
