Cters Every character was vivid and eal Highly After Phrenology recommend Read this with a box of Puffs Plus This book waseally just a snooze I had to do a history project Honestly I felt like it was a chore to Det ordnar sig read I finished the book and the ending was the best part because I was finally finishedeading this piece of junk If you like historical novels that Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl refer a lot to God and Christ this is your book but for me I didn t enjoy the characters and her choices Very uickead Written in Diary form story based in 1763 of a uaker girl from Pennsylvania who was kidnapped by Indians Big print makes you think its a kids book but the language is actually fairly advanced Basically the story is that she gets kidnapped by the Indians and fairly uickly make the mental shift from hating them as savages to uestioning who the savages eally are only to be kidnapped a 2nd time by the British who slaughter some of the people she s grown to love in front of her eyes and forcibly eturn her to her family ie anyone who knows anything about the history of whites who lived among the Indians during that period especially female whites already knows the story line In every instance once the whites have had a chance to get used to the difference in life style especially women they generally preferred the Native American one You guyssss I ead this book again After Eleven Years For eleven years for paper I m doing and I m going to compare it to eal Indian captivities while also examining how the story is framed for elementary school Marina readers Iemember eading this book at the end of 4th grade because it was the last day of 4th grade and the sun was streaming through the windshield of my family s car onto the book I thought it was funny that the book was called Standing in the Light while it was standing in the light itselfI forgot how wonderfully told this story is and how heart wrenching There actually is uite a bit of violence in it which I wasn t expecting Catharine describes scalping and murder not in great detail but I was surprised it was there at all Her eventual identification with her captors is beautifully told though a little overbearing and obvious "At Times Still I Was " times Still I was at the maturity of the voice in a novel meant for 8 10 year olds What s strange about the book though is that Snow Hunter the older boy that she falls in love with while in captivity is actually white He too was taken from his home at a young age and lived the est of his life with the Lenape This was a detail I d forgotten and what does it mean that Catharine doesn t fall for a Native American after all but a fellow white person who just happens to be in captivity with her Osbourne barely mentions that SH isn t white What with her Osbourne barely mentions that SH isn t white What Osbourne trying to say about interracial marriage as it does not appear at all in the book despite being about white people living among Native Americans Also insanely melodramatic that Catharine never marries I hate that Marriage isn t the path for everyone but it was clearly meant to be in Genesis remembrance of Snow Hunter to be his chaste whatever whatever until death when they can join with the Great Spirit or something People can fall in love than once especially you know after the age of 13 I m sure you can love again Everyone needs to chill. Ine is afraid of her captors But when a handsome brave begins to teach her about the ways of the Lenape she comes to see that all people share the same joys hopes and fears Osborne crafts a thrilling story ofomance and danger and emarkable courag. Ng a victim Identifying with the aggressor is one way that the ego defends itself When a victim believes the same values as the aggressor they cease to be a threatAs beautifully written as this story is it is still a story of a very young girl and her brother being kidnapped and taken captive by a group of INDIANS WHO HAVE NO PLANS TO RETURN HER TO who have no plans to eturn her to family until forced to do soThe author has obviously cast the white man in a negative light ignoring the fact that evil Mirror Matter resides in the hearts of all men whiteed yellow or black Bad things happen to good
People Without It Always 
without it always the white man s fault What a heart breaking book I cryed like a baby the first I A Kiss of Shadows (Merry Gentry read it in like third grade This is one of my al time favotrite books Thirteen year old Catherine Logan called Caty by her family and friends lives in the Delaware Valley in Pennsylvania in 1763 Though she lives on the frontier her life is somewhat carefree when the book begins her biggest worry is that she wants a boy at school named Jess Owen to notice her but because she a uaker she is worried about becoming vain for vanity is a sin for uakers Then she learns that a group of settles have massacred theesidents of a peaceful Indian village Caty becomes terrified that the Indians will Six Days retaliate by attacking settlers Her worst fear comes true when Caty and her younger brother Thomas are captured by Lenape Indians Caty and her brother Thomas are treated well by the Lenapes even though they are catpvies They are adopted and shown kindness by their captors as if they were members of the tribe Still Catyebels every chance she gets It is not until she gets to know Snow Hunter a young man who was captured by the Lenapes as a child and chose to The Thames remain with the tribe that Caty finds some hapiness in her new life and she begins to wonder does she even want to beescued any I Who Killed Blanche DuBois? really enjoyed Standing in the Light when I firstead in back in 1998 when it was originally published I ve always enjoyed historical fiction about Indian captives so I was glad when the Dear America series published a book about a girl CAPTURED BY INDIANS CATY WAS A LIKEABLE NARRATOR AND by Indians Caty was a likeable narrator and adjustment to her new life seemed ealistic It was a little unbelievable that Caty was able to continue writing in her diary during her captivity but I was able to accept it due to the format of the series Highly ecommended for Utopia readers who enjoyed other Dear America books or who enjoy historical fiction about this subject As a child Iead a lot of the Dear America books and this one tied with My Heart Is on the Ground for my favorite in the series The author did a great job with character development and examining the cultures featured in the book As the book opens the O Jogo do Acaso reader like Catharine sympathizes with the uakers and thinks the Native Americans are savages Her capture seems like a tragedy Then as the book progresses Catharine slowly changes her perspective and even falls in love Theeader feels all of these things happening Osborne masterfully shows not tells By the end of the book everything in Catharine s life is turned upside down She changes dramatically and it s obvious that the future she had planned for herself is no longer what she wants I adored this book and its chara.
