Overall, I enjoyed the story. It was an easy read, as it was meant for a younger audience.

I will admit there were times when I grew frustrated with Kit, and thought her to be quite the spoilt brat. However, that's pretty much what she was, so I guess I'd have to say that the author did a good job of writing her characters.

I like how she took a time in American history and was able to write in such a way that it actually became interesting to the reader. I think that's a vital skill for writing to the younger readers.
