Changes for Addy is the sixth book and final book of the Addy collection. It is a historical fiction book intended for the intermediate age group. This particular book is about Addy and her family receiving a letter that her aunt, uncle, and baby sister are on their way to Philadelphia to freedom. However, Uncle Solomon does not make it, he dies along the way. I rated the book as deserving five stars because based on previously taught knowledge it appears to capture the time period. The book's is set into 1864 near the end of the Civil War. Addy and her family's speech is an appropriate representation of how slaves and former slaves spoke. The novel ends with Addy reading the Proclamation. Another great addition to Changes for Addy is the “ a Peek into the Past” section located in the back of the book. This section gives a more nonfictional look at the era. Young readers will be attracted to this book, collection, as well as the other American Girl collections because it makes each historic era more understandable and interesting. This book is obviously great in the classroom setting for teaching history more specifically slavery and the Civil War.
