Children’s Books about Rhode Island for Older Readers

The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, by Avi

It’s a bit more fictional than historical as historical fiction, but it’s set in Rhode Island and has been enjoyed by many readers. The second half picks up in action, and it allows you to get on a ship’s boat and join the crew as an 1800s girl from boarding school… super realistic.  This book was written in the 1990s, regarding its views/morality.   Fantasy fiction, that’s the genre.

A 6th – 7th grade book that could be a 4th grade read-aloud or 5th grade read-along.
