To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this book for my (9 yr. old) granddaughter - and of course read it before gifting it to her. It is a lovely book and was historically informative. I would highly recommend it, as well as other books by the author Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. Another book by Ms.. Bradley, The War That Saved My Life, has been the all time favorite in this family.
