Kit: Turning Things Around by Valerie Tripp

Kit: Turning Things Around by Valerie Tripp

Kit: Turning Things Around is a much happier book than the first one in the series. It addresses topics from the Great Depression including hoboes, riding the rails, and FDR’s New Deal. As with all American Girl books, even serious topics are covered in a gentle, but straightforward and truthful way. This book is truly historical fiction done right. I recommend it to all middle grade age kids.
