Review: Julie's Journey (American Girls: Julie #5)

User Review  - Kristine Pratt - Goodreads

While the plot is a bit far-fetched (dumping things out of the wagon just seem nuts...sorry, it is, they're only 20 minutes from camp at a slow walk. That stuff could have been carried...) it's still a fun read. Could have been a lot better though. Read full review
