I really enjoyed the first book, Hattie Big Sky (YA Historical Fiction), everything except the end, which I was so unsatisfied with that I almost rewrote it the way I felt it should be.

When book 2 came out, I was hoping there was a chance for a redeemed ending. But it didn't pan out.

This was an okay read, but it lacked some of the charm of the first book. AND, I still dislike this ending, even though it ends closer to what I probably wanted when I read the first book almost 6 or 7 years ago.

I felt like I went on this interesting journey, and then the book came to an abrupt happy ending, which made very little sense to me, in light of how the story was going before it ended so suddenly. I think if this book had 100 more pages, it might have been better. More things needed to be handled, addressed, and resolved.
