Reviews about Who Is Carrie? (6):
Bys
My fifth-grader and I loved reading this book. Carrie is smart and funny, and we felt like we knew her in a very short time. Reading a chapter (or two) was the highlight of our homeschool day.
HOWEVER, the author ends the book by saying that we "don't know what finally happened to Carrie." My granddaughter threw herself and the book down on the floor in disgust. Collier offers several possible fates, but it's totally unsatisfying. She really liked this character and needed the closure of an ending. It was as if we had a good friend who turned her back on us.
This would have been a five-star-plus rating if not for the ending.

I like reading these books because it gives good actual history behind the scenes. This saga gives good insight of what slavery was about in the northern colonies. We don't read as much about the north as we do the south. The story moves right along and is a fast read.

I just finished reading this whole trilogy about Dan, Carrie and Willy. Jump Ship was very good. I didn't care as much for the Willy plot as it seemed too contrived for me. Carrie was just a rehash of the other plots with no point. The timeline of the stories was difficult to follow. At the end of Jump Ship Dan and his mother had been manumitted and were living in their own place. In Carrie he was back as a sailor slave working for Ivers. It didn't make sense to me. I agree with other reviews that the ending was also pointless and dissatisfying. I gave it two stars because it didn't have a lot of profanity or offensive words and innuendos as other Collier books have.

This fabulous book is about a kitchen slave named Carrie, who worked in Sam Fraunce's Tavern for as long as she can remember. After Carrie gets kidnapped and almost sold off to the West Indies, she realizes that she doesn't even know her own last name, or who her true family was.When Carrie's long time friend Dan Arabus comes to town, they talk about how Dan has alomost $300 in "notes" because Dan's father Jack Arabus fought in the Revolutionary War. So basically a "note" is an I OWE YOU from the Government.Jack Arabus died fighting in the Revolution so Dan got all of his fathers notes.
After talking to Dan, Carrie decides that she really has got to find out who she is, and if she is a slave or not.Once I finished reading this beutiful Historical Fiction Novel I then realized the hardships of slavery. I would recommend this book to all ages and bothe males, and females because this book was easy to understand, yet it was somewhat hard to read with the old 1800's accents and dialects of the Northern Colonies. Also elders would would probably remeber a little about slavery because this went on until the 1950's, ofcourse it was not as bad as it was in the 1800's but still slavery was indeed around then, so they could have a great time reading this book about how slavery was in the 1800's compared to the 1950's. I had to rate this book a four and one half stars because it was just a mystery until the very end and this just made me want to read it more and more so I could find out who carrie was and if she was a slave or not. Now you know how good of a book this was, and you should read it, and trust me, you will be more than happy that you read this amazing part of American History.

James, and Christopher Collier describe this period in history perfectly. This is not like other boring books that the last twenty-three pages of the book you finally start to get into it. This book captures you from the first sentence and doesn't let you go tell the last word. Then you still want to know what happens to her. Although this book is historical-fiction. Alot of it is true.
