American Sisters

Downthe Rio Grande


American Sisters - Down the Rio Grande: 1829I enjoyed the story. It was exciting and adventurous. It was about a girl named Rosita who feels unappreciated, so she runs away. Her stepsister Maria (whom she doesn't like) follows her onto a boat and they end up going down the Rio Grande. While on the boat, Maria and Rosita become friends. Also while on the boat, someone comes by and asks if they've seen Rosita and Maria and said that their father was ill because he missed them so much. The guy who finds them gets a reward, so the captain of the boat decided to lock them in a room to try to get more money out of the father. But the girls had a plan. They would carve their way out through the roof of the boat and climb out and be free. Only things went wrong. Rosita had Maria climb down first and Maria fell into th efast rushing water. Rosita jumped into the water to find her but she couldn't, so she went up onto the shore, upset because she might never see her sister again, so she started singing. After a while, Maria came through the trees. Maria said she heard the singing while in the water and that gave her the strength to get out and find her. They were very happy as they started walking the long walk home.

I would expect that as any artist you have compensated her handsomely for her efforts.

Tom - There certainly is no shortage of brains with Meesha and she will change to world one day. Not sure, how but it certainly will be in her own unique way.

Terry - This is part of her education for school, learning to create work and get it published, but yes, she is getting paid also! My son will eventually be joining with his own book reviews, but he is younger and doesn't read as fast as Meesha, but expect some from him also.

Meesha -

You are 11.  Who would know?  Your book review is so excellent.

You must have a great teacher...or two...right there at home.

I'm looking forward to meeting you.
