There's a nice touch in the fourth book of the American Girls: Felicity series: Felicity does something totally boneheaded. I mean, despite her "spunky, spritely" qualities, she pulls an absent minded stunt that any nine-year-old might do. Other than that, the story has little that rates a comment.
Show More(Well, I do wonder if her family's kitchen helper is an employee or property. Slavery is only mentioned in passing in this series.) 'Tis a simple, predictable tale with a happy ending. It's nice waiting room material, like its predecessors.

Things start to heat up in the 4th "Felicity" book of the American Girl series. Felicity's grandfather, a loyalist, comes to visit for her birthday and gives her a guitar once belonging to her grandmother. Felicity loses the trust of her grandfather and parents when she disobeys them and takes the
Show Moreguitar out of the house. In retrieving the guitar, Felicity overhears disturbing plans, but no one at home believes her. Felicity acts bravely to stop the city's military storehouse from being emptied by the loyalist government. The end-notes says this was a true event in Williamsburg, and no one knows who alerted the people to what was happening, so why not a nine- year old!
