Beforever Felicity: Gunpowder and Tea Cakes (My Journey with Felicity)
"My name is Felicity Merriman," says a girl her age. Instead of shorts or jeans, she's wearing a long blue gown. "Have you just arrived in the city?" She must be one of the junior interpreters, she thinks. She's really good, like an actor.
She decides to play along. "It seems so."
Felicity nods. "Many have arrived since the royal governor schemed to steal the colonists' gunpowder in the dark of night. Patriots have been streaming into Williamsburg like a river in flood!"
What if a girl suddenly found herself in Felicity's world during the American Revolution? Together, she and Felicity could hang out at her father's store, sip tea at the Governor's Place - or get caught up in a gunpowder plot! As she reads, she decides what happens next by choosing her own path through this multiple-ending story.

Our girls devoured these when they were younger, and although the series has undergone some changes, the stories are available for a whole new generation. Each girl's series is changing over to a two-volume set with three of the previously-published
Felicity Merriman is a high-spirited colonial girl growing up in 1774, just as America was becoming a nation. The struggle for American independence is woven into the story lines as Felicity does her part for the cause.
