1. I’ll have to look for this one. (My girls like Liberty’s Kids, too. They’re also completely intrigued and want to learn more about Deborah Sampson, a woman who disguised herself as a boy/man to fight in the Revolutionary war.)

      Ah! I remember that story. I think I first learned of it through a historical fiction series I used to read.

  2. I love your analysis and conclusion. Literary fictions with a “open” or unresolved endings are often seen as more geniune because as you pointed out, much in life is unresolved or not resolved the way we want it to be. A steady diet of “fairy tale” endings can actually be detrimental because it sets up unrealistic expectations. 🙂
