This book was originally published as "A Journey to the New World" in the Dear America series, diaries of fictional young girls during different events in American history. This book tells the story of a young Pilgrim girl.
Remember Patience Whipple, called Mem, is a bit frightened at the thought of the New World her family is sailing to on the Mayflower. She hears tales of strange "feathered people" who will attack the settlers. But she has more immediate concerns - the dreadful Billington boys, who mercilessly tease Mem and her friend Hummy, the ever present seasickness, and the daily boredom during the long, tedious sea voyage. But once she arrives in the New World, things become even worse. During the long, cold first winter at Plymouth, many settlers become sick and die. Mem is frightened that her family might be next. When spring comes, she thinks they are safe - until her mother falls ill and dies. Can Mem find the strength and courage to go on without her mother? And can she come to accept her future stepmother, quiet, sad Mistress Potts?
What I liked best about this book is that it told what a young girl who sailed on the Mayflower and lived at Plymouth Colony might have thought and done. In making the main character a young girl, the author brought the history to life, and I really like the fictional diary format used in this series - it makes you feel really close to the characters. I'd definitely recommend this book to young readers who enjoy historical fiction.

Definitely worth a read to begin to empathise with the difficulties of the journey and transition to the New World called America.

Good historical story from the point of view of "Remember," touching, and funny in places which conjours her emotional hardships.
Not especially happy, but certainly worth finding out about the struggle some children had to endure with their families to survive and form the America we know today.

On the 9th of Novenber The Mayflower set sail for the new world, among the passengers were the Saints ( Pilgrims ) a people persecuted in England for their religious beliefs. This book is based on the diary of Remember Patience Whipple, the voyage was long with many deaths through illness, eventually reaching the New World in approaching winter it was extremely difficult to get some sort of housing and food sorted out and the first winter again brought many deaths, the colony losing about half its number. After making contact with some of the local indians, Samoset, one of the indians came to the colony and helped the colonists by showing what crops grew best etc, with his knowledge of the local tribes a peace treaty was formed and they learned to live side by side, one of the better My Story books and an interesting read.
