4.0 out of 5 stars A gentle, enjoyable tale 29 Mar. 2013
By Rose Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this gentle middle grade story. There are a lot of historical novels about "famous" times and places--the Civil War, the Revolutionary War, New England, Victorian England, etc. But sometimes I just wonder about the rest of the US. This is a peek into Michigan in the late 1800s. Adrian comes to western Michigan after the Chicago fire destroys his house. His family is hopeful for a bright new future in the new town of Singapore. Adrian isn't sure at first that he wants to be there, but as he navigates school, a bully, friends, and even a girl he likes, he starts to feel at home--just as the shifting sand dunes threaten the town. The fact that this was a real place makes me want to someday visit and see what's left.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and based on a true story 17 April 2015
By Angela C - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is very well written. It held my attention the entire time.

It is more than a book, it is a mini history lesson in how one action can cause a reaction or consequence.

It is also a look at being new to a town and learning to like where you end up. Complaining and wanting to leave all the time can make it worse. It is a book of secrets that need keeping.

The characters are fleshed out enough for the story to come to life. The epilogue explains about the true town and what really happened with Singapore, Michigan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mid-Grade Historical 29 Mar. 2013
By Sharon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Twelve-year-old Adrian Bunter and his family are left homeless by the famous 1871 Chicago fire. They moved from relative to relative, finally ending up in Singapore, Michigan. A town nestled in the sand dunes of Lake Michigan where they shovel sand instead of snow.

Adrian misses the life he had in busy Chicago, but finally develops a friendship with a boy, R.T., that can make realistic animal sounds. Jake, the town bully, has it in for Adrian and as fate would have it the land they purchased is right next door to Jake's house.

You may find a change in tense now and again, but the plot will keep you engaged and the characters will cling to your memory.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great "slice-of-life" story. 31 July 2015
By WadeVC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An fun, enjoyable "slice-of-life" period piece that reads like a Norman Rockwell painting.

The characters are very well developed, and the story is just an enjoyable look at thwe daily life for a 12 year-old boy in 1880's Michigan.

Truly a warm, enjoyable read for all age groups.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aunt Approved-Slam Dunk Gift! 24 May 2013
By Miriam Jones Bradley author of All I Have Needed-a Legacy For Life - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After reading this book myself I knew I needed to buy it for my nephew who is 12. He could not put it down and called me right after finishing it to tell me how much he liked it. (I give them books for every birthday and have never received a call like that before!) A definite hit! I need to see more by this author--and so does my nephew!
