New Moon Girls, "Lacey Recommends" - Lacey Louwagie

"What if what YOU thought should happen made a difference in the plot of the stories you read? The You Choose books allow you to imagine yourself as a character from history and take the story down different paths based on the choices you make. Books in the series include Ellis Island, The Child Labor Reform Movement, The Salem Witch Trials, and more." - New Moon Girls, "Lacey Recommends"

Booklist - Angela Leeper

"History can take many paths and these entries in the You Choose: History series prove just that. After a brief introduction to the time period, the books use a “Choose Your Own Adventure”-style format that follows three fictional young people through historical ups and downs – including, sometimes, death. Complemented by archival photographs and reproductions, the brisk text highlights key events, people, and places. . . .Each title concludes with a chapter about the time period’s legacy and extensive back matter to encourage further exploration." - Booklist

The stories are fast-paced, realistic, contain a lot of good historical facts, and often involve life or death choices. . . .These unique titles should be purchased for any elementary school or middle school collection." - Library Media Connection
