Olivia MacAllister, Who Are You? is a fun fiction chapter book for children aged 7 to 10. Will you be inspired to learn about your ancestors’ past like Bobby and Noel?
Review, Rating 3/5
Olivia MacAllister, Who Are You? Is an interesting middle grade read that shows a promise of getting kids interested in their own ancestry. The story is told through short chapters that are easy to read, but still hold vocabulary that children and parents can look up together. The plot advances quickly so the chapters are engaging and full of action so there’s never a dull moment in the search for the truth behind Olivia MacAllister’s past.
The ending, however takes an abrupt turn towards a darker theme that may not be suitable for children of a younger audience.
