Product Details

Praise

“MacColl and Nichols team up for the first title in the new Hidden Histories series, which spotlights lesser-known historical moments. . . intrepid Rory is a likable protagonist with determination and heart, all of which will endear her to readers. . .” –Booklist

“This first in the Hidden Histories series of middle-grade novels highlights an episode in which New York City’s Foundling Hospital sent white youth to unfamiliar Arizona Territory to be adopted by Mexican Catholics, raising the ire of Protestant Anglos and revealing the depths of their prejudice. . . The injustice, drama and action will have readers riveted. . . an exciting, eye-opening read.” –Kirkus Reviews

” . . . Readers will enjoy the fast-paced action and likable main character. Based on a true story and an actual event that took place in 1904, this is a historical novel with a unique topic and plenty of substance, making it especially suitable for class or group discussion.” –School Library Journal
