Book Review - Audacity Jones to the Rescue
About the Book Audacity Jones is an eleven-year-old orphan who aches for adventure, a challenge to break up the monotony of her life at Miss Maisie's School for Wayward Girls. Life as a wayward girl isn't so bad; Audie has the best of friends, a clever cat companion, and plenty of books to read. Still, she longs for some excitement, like the characters in the novels she so loves encounter.
So when the mysterious Commodore Crutchfield visits the school and whisks Audie off to Washington, DC, she knows she's in for the journey of a lifetime. But soon, it becomes clear that the Commodore has unsavory plans for Audie -- plans that involve the president of the United States and a sinister kidnapping plot. Before she knows it, Audie winds up in the White House kitchens, where she's determined to stop the Commodore dead in his tracks. Can Audie save the day before it's too late?
My Take on the Book
What a fun book! As a mystery loving family, this book was full of twists and turns and a good mystery that keeps you guessing. On top of this though we also get to have a fun cast of characters that I know that my daughters are truly looking forward to seeing in future books.
One of the things that my daughters loved about Audactity was her willingness to try everything. As a father, this is something I try and encourage my kids to do on a daily basis as well.
They also loved that this took place in the past. They have been really interested in history lately so reading a piece that was based in times past and was written in such a way that transports you there was fun for them and they really got a feel for the time and the era!
Overall, this was a great book for boys and girls (as well as their parents)!
