The Horn Book Magazine. Dahlberg presents a realistic portrayal of the formal separation of East and West Germany and the building of the Berlin Wall holds readers' attention. Youngsters will also relate to Heidi's emotional struggle with maturity. This memorable book is perhaps the first historical fiction story for youth set during this era. The authentic re-creation of the setting along with credible, realistic characters and a suspenseful and fast-paced plot will satisfy even the most reluctant readers. Dahlberg (Author). I decided to read the book with them because we're going to Berlin on vacation in a few days and I thought it would be nice for them to hear a little about the city beforehand. I think they will enjoy the city A LOT MORE after reading this book.

She must get to the west or be trapped in East Berlin for the rest of her live with harsh connditions. 1. I KNOW THE TWO OF YOU CAN’T GO, but I can go by myself, I whispered. I was standing at our living room window, looking out at the dull, rainy East Berlin evening and rehearsing the words I’d say to my parents. You have no idea how much I look forward to going every year! I frowned.

A pre-Civil War novel featuring an indomitable heroineNot long after her pa goes off to look for gold, Gilly Bucket is transplanted from Missouri to Virginia, to the home of her late mother's sister. Gilly is bewildered by the fancy formality of life at Glencaren, and by the use of slaves to make it possible. She knows her uncle needs help to run the huge farm, and her aunt to manage the household, especially with cousin Sarah's wedding approaching. But Pa taught her that slavery is wrong.Although her aunt and uncle don't seem to take to the opinionated, irrepressible Gilly, Sarah is kind, and seven-year-old cousin Neddy is delighted by Gilly's wild stories. Still, it's the slave girl Rissy who saves Gilly from loneliness. Together, the girls learn about the underground railroad, and about the mysterious person, called the Spirit, who helps operate the system that frees slaves. Together, they begin Rissy's journey to freedom.This second novel by Maurine F. Dahlberg is an exciting story about the time when the United States of America was hardly united, as seen by an irresistible eleven-year-old whose enthusiasm and confidence may be her greatest liability.

A girl who went to live in Virginny never knew she was in the house one of the Spirits, Underground Railroad Conducters, until she had to help two slaves escape. Mary Gillian Bucket went to live with her Aunt Laura and Uncle Henry while her father went west looking for gold in the mines. She met a slave girl, Clarissa Ruth, who's father had also left her to go north to freedom. Gilly was planning to run away for she thought her Aunt Laura hated her guts. But she soon come to find out that her Aunt Laura didn't used to be a proper house wife; instead she was a rough housin adventure girl like herself. Gilly got to help her friend Rissy and another slave escape one night on the underground railroad for her Aunt Laura needed to get them to safety up north. Gilly's father's friend later came to recieve Gilly and take her up north to her daddy and his new wife, Lizzi. I recommend this book to people who love adventure stories.

Mary Gillian Bucket was a very brave young girl. Gilly wasn't afraid to speak up to the man of the house and prove him wrong, even if she got a whippin in the barn soon enough. She also wasn't afraid to sneak food and teach the alphabet and numbers to slaves, even though she could get into serious trouble for helping slaves. The bravest thing that Mary did was help two slaves escape in the woods at night when blood hounds were also out in the woods looking for runaway slaves.

Clarrisa Ruth and Mary Gillian Bucket did almost everything together as soon as they met. Every night Rissy and Gilly would wish their love to their daddies on the north star, since they couldn't give them love in person. They also did they chores together to make it seem a little fun when it really wasn't. The last thing they did together was hide in the woods to find the next conducter to the underground railroad so Rissy could get to safety, and maybe see her daddy up in Canada.

Aunt Laura was always hard on Gilly for she had her sisters Knicknack that was supposed to be hers. When Gilly recommended a type of herb recipe for a cure that her friend had taught her, Aunt Laura immedietly said hers was better and that was that. Also Aunt Laura gave Gilly a lot of chores to keep her from telling adventure stories to her son and to keep her from playing with the slaves. The meanest thing she did to Gilly was tell her she looked a hot mess, for her hair was messy and she had on a horrific rag dress.

The Spirit of Gilly Bucket is meant for people who love adventure stories with a lot of love built right along with it. Gilly was in a place she really didn't want to be, for she wanted to be with her Pa out west. Aunt Laura didn't do such a good job of making her feel right at home either, for Gilly was put straight to work in the house. But lucky for Gilly she had Rissy, her best slave friend, who was always there for her to comfort her when she misses her Pa and to have fun too.

When Gilly's Pa goes off to find gold, he leaves her with a woman she calls Granny Pea after promising to return. But Granny Pea dies soon afterward, and Gilly is sent to live with her dead mother's sister in the South. Gilly likes her cousins, Sarah and Neddy, but not her Aunt Laura, who seems to dissapprove of everything Gilly does. She plans to run away to find her father, about whom she is desperately worried since she hasn't had a letter from him in several months. Gilly's father has taught her that slavery is wrong, and she makes very good friends with a slave girl named Rissy. Then she gets caught up in a scary underground railroad adventure that helps turn her into an adult.
The reason I only gave this book four stars was that the story was fine, but I just didn't really like Gilly. She was a very shallow character and didn't seem to have any deep struggles within her. This story was OK, just not very meaningful.
The Spirit of Gilly Bucket is a really good book. If you love stories that keep you wondoring how it is going to end this is the book for you. Its about a girl, named Gillly who is a slave. She hasnt seen her dad since she was a little kid. She goes through a tough life, making friends and living the way a slave would. At the end Gilly realizes that she has some people she can truly trust. Who the Spirit really is, and to never give up when you believe in something. This was a great book, and was easy to understand. Good job Maurine F. Dahlberg!!
