Too rushed, and Dina is very whiny.
This book was not good at all! I read it for school, and i want to slap the author and protagonist in the face. First of all. Dina is a whiny little girl who doesn't want to sew anymore. She somehow is labeled as a french spy so she has to be sent to America. There she has to sew more. (The horror!) After awhile, i got tired of listening to Dina's incessant whining. Then she meets Johann (UGGGGGHHH) and now all she does is Johann this and Johann that. Personally, i don't see the reasons she has to whine, until the fire at the end. I was doing a unit on immigrants, and she seems to have it easy compared to most of them. I also didn't like it when Johann was introduced solely as a love interest, as soon as she meets him they are practically kissing. (uck!) The beggining and ending were rushed, and the middle seemed like filler. I think it would have worked better as a picture book
A house of Tailors
It is good book and adventurous.
A House Of Taylors is a book about a girl named Dina who lives with Taylors, her mom and her dear sister Katherina in the early 1870's. her uncle in America sends for Katherina, but Dina is being chased by two soldiers because they think she is french, so instead Dina leaves instead of her sister. In America, Dina, at fist, thinks that she will never have to to sew again, but that is what she thought, when she got there she saw a sewing matchine and was very dissapointed, she never wanted to sew again. Later in the story, she has big adventure and finally she got used to the family and never wanted to leave, " you must go home" the uncle said " we do not have enough money"
