I was sent an ARC of this book from the lovely people over at Skypony Press! I was super excited when they sent me a copy because it is said to be a mashup between Hamilton and National Treasure!
“A fun story that twist history and conspiracy into a tale of friendship and danger!”
Summary | Goodreads
I had a lot of different feelings about this book! I liked it but at the same time I had a few issues with it. Therefore, I will be giving this book a 3.75 rating. I want to clarify that this isn’t a low rating but a happy medium! I love Young Adult Fiction and American History. So, I enjoyed that this story brought them together.
This book was completely different from what I thought it would be! I thought it was going to be set back in the 1700s-1800s but no! So, this book threw me through a loop because it wasn’t what I was expecting. But I loved the characters because they were fun and a bit quirky.
Now here would be where I would talk about the issues I had with the book but I can’t explain them! I have been trying to write this review for an hour now and I am lost. I think I was expecting more depth from the conspiracy and then I was a bit disappointed that the book ended so fast and cleanly. I wanted more from this story.
I think this book would be great for middle schoolers! I would put this in Middle Grade and not Young Adult Fiction but that’s my opinion.
Check out this book because it was fun and I enjoyed the characters.
