History and adventure are all wrapped in one with the new Girls Survive books from author Nikki Shannon Smith! Join us on Saturday, February 16th to meet the author of exciting books for middle readers based on real events in history.
In Noelle at Sea: A Titanic Survival Story, 13-year-old Noelle feels like the luckiest girl in the world to be cruising the Atlantic aboard the famed Titanic - a trip made even better by her new friend, Pauline. On the fifth night, Noelle awakens to a sinking ship and breaks away from her family to find and help her friend. In Ann Fights for Freedom: An Underground Railroad Survival Story, 12-year-old Ann understands there is only one thing to be grateful for as a slave: having her family together. But when the master falls into debt, he plans to sell Ann and her younger brother to two different owners. Ann is convinced her family must run away on the Underground Railroad. Will her family survive the dangerous trip? Both Girls Survive stories are supported by a glossary, discussion questions, and nonfiction material that enhance the reading experience.
