Maude didn't like for me to read dime novels. Sad to say, Maude thought dimers were a waste of learning how to read. For this is the true story of how my sister, Maude March, came to be known far and wide as a horse thief, a bank robber, and a cold-blooded killer.

Maude didn't like for me to read dime novels. It's just a made-up name for made-up stories out of books, she said. Boys probably look up to him, but Joe Harden is just a story figure. AUNT RUTHIE DIED THERE ON THE BOARDWALK IN FRONT of the mercantile, and our lives changed overnight. We went out in the morning to choose a box at the undertaker's and came back to find a man from the bank locking our doors.

I love the story of these two sisters, Sally March and Maude! I think that Maude is a very unique name! ;) I felt like the ages of these girls were off somehow. Audrey Couloumbis has created a wonderful tale of two girls fighting their way through wild America and all the trouble that comes from being mistaken for something you aren't. I really enjoyed the characters Sallie and Joe.

Eleven-year-old Sallie March is a whip-smart tomboy and voracious reader of Western adventure novels. When she and her sister, Maude, are orphaned for the second time, they decide to escape their new self-serving guardians for the wilds of the frontier and an adventure the likes of which Sallie has only read about. This time, however, the wanted woman isn’t a villain out of a dime novel–it’s Sallie’s very own sister! Narrated by the irrepressible Sallie, what follows is the rollicking story of what really happened out there on the range. Not the lies the papers printed, but the honest-to-goodness truth of how things went from bad to worse and how two very different sisters went from being orphans to being outlaws–and lived to tell the tale! Bursting with memorable characters, fast-paced action, and laugh-out-loud moments, this is Newbery Honor winner Audrey Couloumbis’s most unforgettable work yet.

Bottom line - this is one of the best sister books I've read in a while. Sure, it's a western adventure with a cowgirls-on-the-run plot. It's sort of a dryly funny "True Grit" for a slightly younger crowd. It has a lot of action and horses and chases and bad guys and dusty towns and accidental shootin's and trail riding and such, and that's all fun, but it's not the main point.

What we have is a teenage girl, Maude, who accidentally ends up as a hunted desperado, and her younger sister sidekick, Sallie. This younger sister is a gimlet-eyed, practical, deadpan, dry-as-dust funny narrator of our tale, and her flinty throw-away lines pepper the book. But get this - the two sisters like and admire each other, support and encourage each other, understand each other, and are loyal through thick and then. No phoney-baloney, no ironic detachment, they are sisters and a team. This doesn't come across as dopey or preachy; it's just the basic nature of their relationship and who they are, and it informs all of the action. When one is weak the other is strong; when one is confused the other is decisive. And you like them both, you root for them, and you cheer their little escapades and victories.

I think the western setting really helps. We avoid all of the modern cliches - no school or fashion angst, no mean girls, or bullies, or cell phones, or dreamy jocks, or any of the staples of modern teen fiction. The western time and place strips the story of the two girls down to its essentials and eliminates modern distractions. This leaves the field open for the characters to really shine, and reminds us why westerns remain a classic story-telling form.

The upshot is that you get a funny and sharply observed picaresque with two great female leads, finely sketched and entertainingly eccentric secondary characters, and spare western dime novel deadpan narrative. This book is loaded with vinegary one-liners, straight faced cowboy humor, and laconic cowboy understatement. I would press this into the hands of any young reader who possessed an ounce of spunk, and would especially recommend it for those seeking strong and courageous heroines.

Much like the "dimer novels" Sallie enjoys reading in this novel, "The Misadventures of Maude March" gets off to a rollicking start and continues at this fast and furious pace. Bank robberies, mountain lions, ornery mules, shooting, snake attacks, outlaw gangs--it is full of everything a reader could want. When Sallie and Maude are orphaned by the stray bullet from a dimer hero Joe Harden, they are sent to live with the preacher who sees them as potential maids. Anxious to marry off Maude, the sisters decide to escape in search of long lost Uncle Arlen. Stealing two horses and disguised as boys, they fall into one wild escapade after another. Interspersed are highly exaggerated newspaper articles about Maude's escapades. With its fast action, humor, fully developed and strong heroines, it is a perfect novel to suggest to those readers looking for more than a girl wants boy, chases boy, falls in love type novel.
A great read aloud as well, and one that has enough excitement to appeal to male listeners. A thoroughly enjoyable book, worth 5+ stars!

I was introduced to this book by way of my daughters' 4th grade class. I absolutely loved this book and this was a good weekend read. I am positive that I will read the other Maude March books.
Modigas
Pretty good for younger readers, although it has some challenging vocabulary and some mature elements to the story. Overall though I would recommend it for 4th or 5th grade readers
Bragis
great book for 8 years old
Very good story. This would make an interesting western film.
