Charlotte Lake is blaming all the current upheavals in her life on Laura Ingalls. After all, if her mother had not been inspired to write a book about a pioneer girl then they would not be moving to Walnut Grove.
This is a great book for middle grade girls and boys who loved the Little House series. It critically examines some of the national issues that were occurring during Westward Expansion like Indian resettlement, Chinese migrant workers, railroads, etc. Without pointing fingers, the book shows the reader the facts about history alongside the story of Laura Ingalls. It also shows the train wreck that occurs when you heap lie upon lie. A cautionary tale and worth reading.
