    I grew up in Maryland, in a house full of books Both of my parents were avid readers, thank goodness Before we traveled to a new area, my librarian mom used to bring home historical novels set in that place It was a great way to get excited about history.I began writing stories when I was maybe 10 or 11 At 15 I wrote my first novel I sold my first novel to a publisher 20 years later Writing was my hobby, so during those two decades I just kept practicing, reading, writing some What a thrill to finally hold my first book in my hand Still, I write because I enjoy the process at least most of the time.For years I wrote while working at other day jobs I spent 12 years working at a huge historic site, which was a perfect spot for someone interested in historical fiction I also developed and scripted instructional videos for public television Finally, though, it got to be too much to juggle I now write full time, and consider myself enormously fortunate to do something I love.

  • Although they weren't as engaging as some of the other American Girl books I have read, I generally liked the Caroline books. This one, Caroline Takes a Chance, annoyed me a bit however. Although I question the reality of a mother letting her 10-year-old daughter go out to deliver the mail while they are in the middle of a war by herself (the war of 1812), I admit it may just be my 20th century perspective. What really bothered me was the fact that after Caroline knows that she really should tur [...]


  • This one was great. No whining, a lot of stepping up to help and quick, but productive, thinking.I thoroughly enjoyed reading this part of Caroline's story. What starts out as a normal fishing trip leads to action and adventure. Caroline takes charge several times and her quick thinking successfully helps Sackett's Harbor and her family. Caroline's character grew showing strength, courage, ambition, tenacity, and love. All good things. She wavered over her initial decision, but did not whine or [...]




  • It's always a good sign when books meant for people 10+ years younger than I am have major plot twists that I don't see coming, right?


  • This is probably my favorite book in the series so far. I have but two left, and overall have enjoyed this cute, American Girl series about the Abbott family during the War of 1812.The war has been going on for about a year now, and supplies are getting low. So it's important that supply carrier, Irish Jack (red hair? most certainly--Irish? but of course!) can bring his shipment into Sackets Harbor, where Caroline's family lives. Her father is still being held prisoner across the bay, by the Bri [...]


  • Seth, Rhonda and Caroline go fishing--they spot Irish Jack's ship with supplies being chased by the British. In order to slow down/stop the British, Caroline gets an idea to sink their skiff, the Sparrow to block the waterway. They do, and the British turn around.At this point Seth decides that he wants to enlist in the Navy. Caroline takes over the remainder of Seth's post walker duties around Sacketts Harbor. When she finishes, she realizes she's close to the fishing camp that her father used [...]


  • Spring is coming to Sackets Harbor, which also means the ice is melting and supply ships are coming. The shipyard desperately needs these supplies to continue to build ships for the war against the British. Caroline and her friends, Seth and Rhonda decide to go fishing in her father’s skiff. While on the water the see Irish Jack coming with his supply ship, however, the British are chasing him! Caroline and her friends know how important this ship is to their community. But can a bunch of kids [...]


  • Caroline bravely faces many difficult situations in this fourth book in the series. While out fishing with her friends, they spy the desperately awaited supply boat being tailed by a British ship. To help the supply boat make its way to shore without any trouble from the British, Caroline devises a plan to block the waterway, forcing the British ship to turn around. The plan works, but she has to sacrifice her beloved boat.As if that wasn't enough adventure for one book, later Caroline finds her [...]


  • Childhood memory: None Okay, so this isn't technically one of the American Girl books I read as a kid. But, my memories of those I did enjoy keep me interested in checking in on the historical American Girl books as AG publishes them.Revisited review: This was a great series, in a great setting. I wasn't sure what to expect, I thought the Caroline series would be boring and bland but I was pleasantly surprised. The War of 1812 time frame and key location setting really kept the stories engaging [...]


  • My 7-year-old daughter and I have been reading the series together and this has been the most suspenseful and action/adventure packed book in the series so far. My daughter was a bit frightened for Caroline so she wasn't sure in Chapter 4 if she wanted to finish the book last night or not but in the end her curiosity and need to know what happens won out. Can't wait to see what is in store for Caroline in the next installment of the series.


  • Caroline has to put a hole in the boat her Papa made, and then she finds Papa. He is sick, and his leg is broken because he has to escape from the British, and he runs on the ice, trying to find his way out. Caroline helps him home and tell her Mom to help her. When Caroline comes home, her mother had been worried, because she said she would come right back. But her Mama is proud to see that she helped Papa home!


  • I give this book 4 stars. Someone you likes adventures would find this book interesting.( You should read the first three books before you read this one.) Caroline first gives up something that was so special to her and next she realizes that she is lost in an adventure and finds something that she never excepted.


  • Okay, this one is a little better than the last one. Not much, but a little. Caroline and her friends stop a British warship from capturing an American merchant vessel loaded with supplies that are essential for the American war effort. The, Caroline finds her father--an escapee from a British prison--laying sick and alone at their fishing camp. Still no cannons.


  • Real tearjerker, especially when (view spoiler)[ Caroline finds her father sick and injured at their old fishing camp after he escapes the British. (hide spoiler)] Caroline is one of the most resourceful and unselfish of the American Girl heroines, and I applaud Pleasant Company for continually providing young girls with quality literature in the largely under-appreciated historical fiction genre.


  • I think that this one was pretty good! One of my favorite parts was when I got to the back of the book and there was more about the history of the book! I really did like the adventure a lot. I think that this was an excellent little summer read and teaches a ton about American History:):):)


  • I read these books to my little sister. She really enjoys them. One day she asked me about war, and said, "That's what Caroline is going through." It was neat to see her empathizing with her and getting so into the story that she dreamt about it.



  • I enjoy how it includes history but still appeals to young girls and also gives them courage to embrace themselves.




  • I read this book.I like that Caroline, Seth, and Rhonda saved the supply boat from a British sloop.I don't like that Papa had broke his leg.It was a good book.




  • A ten-yr-old girl takes a chance to save her father during The War of 1812. Fast read. Really shows how young adults have changed in 200 years.


  • Good story. I'm impressed the way the author wove a sense of the times and setting into the series.I read this after my 3rd grader.



  • Caroline certainly takes a chance. Thankfully it all comes out ok in the end. While I don't like that she disobeyed, I do love the courage this girl shows.
