I read this book and I liked it! It is about an 11 year old girl name Ivy Weatherall who immigrates from London, England to Saskatchewan, Canada. Her family stays with her uncle for a bit and then they get a new house. This book was set in the 1920s and tells you about Ivy’s new life in a new country, new friends, and a new start. I reccomend you read this book because you will learn more about Canada’s history in the old days.

Rating: ★★★★½

This book is in diary form of a perspective of a Metis in Batoche at the time of The Battle of Batoche. The main charater, Josephine Bouvier, writes a diary that his grandfather, Moushoom gave to her on new years day. It talks about her life and what else was going on and of course, The Battle of Batoche.
The part I like about this book was when later on in Josephine’s life she getsher mother’s watch back.
The part I didn’t like was to learn that most of the events in the book are true.
I give it 4.5 because ov erall it was a good book but, the author could had put in more description.

I loved this book, because I found it very funny how Jenna wished to go on an adventure, but never knew that she was always on one. Jenna was on a bit of a bumpy road at first, but in the end every thing turned out alright.
