Maggie’s Door by Patricia Reilly Giff

The book Maggie’s Door is by Patricia Reilly Giff.  The main characters are Nory and Sean, who are brother and sister and I like them because they have nice dialog.  This book is informational about immigration and sort of a mystery because Sean ends up getting lost. The story takes place in a poor section of Ireland but the brother and sister travel to America.  They ran away to find somewhere better to plant their crops. The theme is realistic and informational. The book is sort of sad.  I would recommend this book to ages 11- 13 if you like historical fiction.
