PLAYING BEATIE BOW
THE BOOK THAT YOU CAN NOT PUT DOWN.
By Ruth Park.
The book is very good it’s one of those books you just can not put down. I’ve just finished it and was a little bit sad about that. I will find another interesting book soon enough but I recommend that people should read this book themselves. I definitely enjoyed this book.
The book is about a girl whose original name was Lynnette then was changed too Abigail the book is set in modern time but then Abigail accidentally goes through a kind of portal that goes into old Sydney, a place called The Rocks in the eighteenth century. So you get to experience what it was like in that time through the eyes of a modern girl.
She follows Beatie into the past and get’s knocked over by a man who is the father of a family that nurses Abigail back too health then Abigail gets kidnapped by drunks and gets saved by Judah and his friend’s and she rescues two people from a fire.
My favorite part of the book is when a man called Judah and Abigail are sailing through Sydney Harbour and it is interesting too compare it too the Sydney Harbour of today.
All the while she is concerned about the long time she is missing from home
and she often want’s her mum and too know what’s happening in her time when she get’s home she is very surprised to see that the time has hardly changed at all.
