A new student review of Wheels of Change by Darlene Beck Jacobson

Anjel posted a new student review of Wheels of Change by Darlene Beck Jacobson. See the full review.

This book was great. I loved that Emily received a response and invitation from the president after sending a letter criticizing him. It gives me hope that maybe someday I will meet the President also. I really liked that a girl my age, Emily, was the heroine in the story.  She is very couragous and brave. The book brings up some issues that are difficult, but the only thing I didn't like was the nasty Mrs. Peabody character and how mean people can be to each other. I would recommend this book to 10-12 year olds, historical fiction lovers and fans of The Ninth Ward by Jewell Parker Rhodes.
