The Tragically True Adventures of Kit Donovan
One of my favorite books in a long time. Really. I sped through this one in a day. On and off switching the laundry with my Kindle propped up precariously on piles of clothes I read and wondered if Kit was going to be able to get the proof she needed to put her Dad’s murderer in jail.
In 1905 as a thirteen-year-old girl Kit was supposed to be going to school and thinking about getting married. Instead, she was brave enough to tackle the challenges life sent her way. Her adventures included dressing as a boy to work at a newspaper and then going undercover to the mine to search for evidence. She had help from her friends, and some people that she didn’t know were friends.
She takes what she has learned from reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and applies it to her situation.
I loved how at the conclusion her Aunt gifts her a copy of Around the World in 72 Days written by Nellie Bly. That book is now on my wishlist too.
I read the digital galley of The Tragically True Adventures of Kit Donovan in exchange for an honest review.
