Meet Caroline is the first book in a series of books about Caroline, a brave 9 year old girl growing up in northern New York during the War of 1812.

Caroline is with her father and two cousins, sailing around Lake Ontario-something she loves to do more than anything-when something happens that could change her life forever. Three longboats carrying the British flag sail up to her father’s ship, the White Gull! They board the ship and Caroline’s father and her oldest cousin, Oliver, are taken prisoner by the British!

Caroline and her 11 year old cousin, Lydia, are allowed to go back home, but her father and Oliver are still kept by the British!

Shortly after she arrives back home, the British attack her village! During the attack, she makes a great (and brave) contribution to the war effort. Read on to find out more!

I loved this book! I will definitely be reading the second book, and I hope you will, too!
