    Here s the thing I went into this book not knowing what the Hudson Bay Company was, and honestly, if you asked me what it was now, I m not sure I d be able to give you a comprehensive answer and usually I d mark a Dear Canada Dear America book down for that, since I expect some relatively intimate detail about whatever topic they re covering.But honestly, Jenna made up for it.Jenna s voice was amazing Her character and development was amazing She was funny and animated and so very real This diar [...]

    My favourite part was when all the girls at the school liked Jenna because she helped warn Mr Hammond from being attacked by Mr Cavendish The worst part was when Mr Cavendish tricked everyone to think that he was good, and really he was the bad person My favourite character was Jenna because she was nice and helpful to the other girls, and also Mr Hammond The worst character was Mr Cavendish because he tried to attack Mr Hammond, and Mr Hammond did nothing wrong Auryn 12 years old, 2015

    Another great read from the Dear Canada series, Where the River Takes Me will leave the reader entertained and wanting to know what comes next in the story Julie Lawson does a fantastic job at creating lively characters and also providing a story full of adventure, which keeps the reader engaged.Like every book in the Dear Canada series, I learned a little bit about Canada s history, to which I am proud of.

  9. Meghan

    Felt like 100 or so pages could have been omitted as there was a lot of filler in the plot Didn t really like Jenna and there was way too much capitalization Disappointing because I am interested in the history of the old forts Also felt like the US was short changed in the book Especially where I m from the fur industry was very important my state animal is the beaver too but Lawson makes it sound like it was only important for Canada.

  10. Julia

    Not the best book in the series, but still enjoyable It didn t have any dry moments like some of the books and it easy to relate After all Jenna did go through some tough moments with bullying at school and false accusations.I would recommend this book, but it would not be the first that comes to mind when it comes to this series.

  11. Meaghan Steeves

    Definitely the longest of the diaries, and not exactly my favourite While I did enjoy the journey aspects and the times Jenna spent with the Songhees, there were several events that felt out of place to me and I felt it went on longer than it had to.

  12. Dana

    This book was a good book and I enjoyed reading it cover to cover I look forward to reading Dear Canada books

  13. Gennifer Miller

    I ve been in situations like Jenna a lot, so her isolation at school and her homesickness made me a little uncomfortable.

  14. Jenna Leigh

    I remember so, so little of this book, but I gave it 3 stars because A the main character s name is Jenna, B part of it is set in Fort Edmonton, and C I think I liked it So there

  15. Harold

    Part of a very good series that is basically historical fiction in diary form designed for 12 year old girls, give or take a birthday.

  16. Renae

    Well written, but not really focusing on an event like other titles I found it a little lacking in that area I d have given it 3.5 stars if I could have.

  17. E

    An interesting enough account of life in western Canada in the mid nineteenth century, even if our spunky heroine did come off as a sort of early Nancy Drew.
