After the War of 1812, Remembrance "Mem" Nye and her family relocate from Connecticut to the unsettled area of western New York. Mem believes it is a complete journey to nowhere in the great wilderness with just endless forest. Along this adventure, Mem's family encounters the perils of wild animals, raging storms, and cruel strangers. (written by me)
I was not totally enthralled with this story like I was with Princess Academy or the Land of Elyon series (which I will post book reviews on), but I did enjoy Auch's book. She portrays an eleven year old girl in the spring of 1815, on the prairie with her family of four.
I have never read (in all my reading years) a history fiction before now. I did, however, appreciate Auch's work and research she put into this book. I doubt anyone under the age of nine would like Journey to Nowhere.
There was brief violence in Journey to Nowhere such as drinking, smoking, and knives. There were no bad words, if I remember correctly.
With that I give this book 4 stars.
This is my first book review and I assure you, they will get better!
