Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Sixteen-year-old Jenny faces many challenges on an overland journey to California in 1853 with the acting company that she inherited from her father.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-7?Following her father's death, Fortune Plunkett, 17, is leading his acting troupe to San Francisco. It is 1853 and the trip will be a treacherous one. As the story begins, the players have arrived in Busted Heights, Missouri, to deal with some "unfinished business." Here, Fortune meets Jamie, whose stepmother runs the hotel where the troupe stays. The intended sense of mystery surrounding Jamie and the reason for coming to this out-of-the-way town develop into a contrived plotline. A fight and a subsequent fire cause the acting company to flee, and Jamie, who is curiously able to recite Shakespeare, runs off with them, thus creating the romantic interest for Fortune. Characterization is disappointing. Fortune's motivation based on her devotion to her father seems flimsy, and her passion for the theater is tentative. The book's historical aspect offers interest, and readers do get a sense of the ordeal involved in a wagon-train journey. Living conditions and 19th-century theatrical life are well described, but as a novel this is basically a melodrama with characters who play predictable roles. Misunderstandings interfere with the course of Fortune's romance, but they are cleared up, as is the nature of the business in Busted Heights. This is a departure in genre for Coville, and it falls short of its potential.?Renee Steinberg, Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ
