This book is a fun-filled, rollicking romp of adventure! Wow! Becky Thatcher is one fearless, spunky, and quick on her feet kind of a girl and a tomboy through and through. She is also feisty, fun, compassionate, and struggling with the withdrawal of her mother from society, and from her, while dealing with the loss of her brother in the best way she knows how.
The story takes place in the fall of 1860 and is the authors take on how Mark Twain's THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER could have been inspired. The story is not only a fabulous read for young and old and every age in between, the author connects the two stories perfectly and really makes you wonder if it could have happened this way.
I loved reading about Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn as a young girl. THE ACTUAL & TRUTHFUL ADVENTURES OF BECKY THATCHER is an excellent read and I'm excited to add it to my collection. It's a book I will read again - I really hope Lawson has another adventure in the works for the adventurous and spirited Miss Becky Thatcher.
