The Trouble With Tea is a book that deserves nothing but praise. A tale depicting the events leading up to the Boston Tea Party and the start of the Revolutionary War as seen through a young colonial girl's eyes, this work has a well-developed and well-presented plot with characters that are enjoyable and engaging. Sure to enthrall young minds and pull them right into 1773 Boston, every young girl who reads this book will long for the dresses described so beautifully, and the boys will wish they could have witnessed, or even participated in, the Indian raid on the tea. With historic endnotes that include England's retaliation to the Boston Tea Party, The Trouble With Tea will stimulate young minds and encourage their curiosity about the Boston Tea Party, the Revolutionary War, and the people and events that shaped our nation. It is a story that interweaves historical fact with a coming of age story so creatively, the reader truly is transported in time and has no desire to return to the present at the end. But when they do, they will return not only thoroughly entertained, but with an education and pride in how this country began, as well as the people responsible for its founding.
