Title: Meet Caroline
Series: American Girls:Caroline #1
Illustrator: Robert Papp & Lisa Papp
Author: Kathleen Ernst

Caroline Abbott is doing what she loves most—sailing on Lake Ontario with Papa—when her world turns upside down. A British officer boards their sloop, announces that Britain and America are at war, and takes her father prisoner. As Papa is led away, Caroline promises him that she will stay strong and steady until he returns. She tries hard to keep her promise by helping Mama run the family’s shipyard. Then the British attack her village and it looks as if the American side is in trouble. Can Caroline stay steady enough to help win the day?


Meet Caroline begins when Caroline, her two cousins, and her father are out on the ship. Caroline wants to own her own boat when she gets older, and she’s determined to prove to her father she can do it. However, the British and America are at war again, and they take her father and older cousin prisoner. Caroline must return home to her mother to tell her the bad news, and help her with the household and running the shipyard.

This book was really good! I loved Caroline, and I felt so bad for what she went through. She’s a brave, and courageous young girl who did things to help her family, and friends. I can’t wait to read more about her and what happens with her family!

This is a great American girl story, and I recommend it for any young girl who loves these books.
