I thought this book was very good and well done.The main character goes on a journey to find her dad during the gold rush after a tragedy happened with her mother.
But she had to dress up as the opposite gender! She meets some friends along the way and tries to keep the secret.
She is the kind of girl that never gives up on her dreams. And I really liked that about her.
I reviewed this book because it stood out as one of the best I've read.
