    The Tragically True Adventures of Kit Donovan may not be true but they are tragic and rollicking Eual parts Nancy Drew Series of Unfortunate Events with a heavy helping of Kit's own hero Huck Finn Kit struggles to fit the mold of womanhood prescribed by society in her two bit gold rush town in Nevada A series of mining accidents and her own follies fitting in at school compel Kit to take action doing what no woman even no adult has the nerve to and eventually to find a new path in life The story bursts at the seams with action thrilling danger intrigue multiple sided characters and mystery which is too delicious to spoil here The western setting far from being tired allows us to see fascinating sides of frontier life and turn of the century advances Unionization The gold rush Coastal vs Western culture Automobiles The importance of a free press Don't worry there's at least one shootout too Patricia Bailey writes with such ease and confidence that the pages just fell away and I was done ready for the next Kit adventure before I knew it Kit is a wonderful spitfire of a modern hero and I can easily see many many seuels in her future Bravo

    This book made my Nancy Drew loving heart happy Kit Donovan is such an easy heroine to root for—she’s determined brave clever and took me on an adventure that had me flipping the pages late into the night And the setting—a small Nevada mining town during the Gold rush—added layers of interest and intrigue Kit is a girl ahead of her times determined to forge her own path in a world that expects her to be minding her manners in a proper dress instead of going undercover to work at a newspaper or solving crimes This is a read under the covers with a flashlight kind of story chock full of adventure and mystery

    E ARC from NetgalleycomIn 1905 Kit's mother has passed away from the flu Her father is still working in the mines in Goldfield Nevada and is badly injured by a falling beam When he confronts the owner about the working conditions he is fatally shot Luckily for Kit a kindly older woman Clara takes her in and helps her out Kit feels a lot of guilt for both parents' deaths and also has to deal with children at school who think her father was an agitator After she decides not to go back east with her Aunt Minerva she and her friend Arnie decide to investigate and try to clear her father's name To this end Kit disguises herself as a boy and goes to work at the local newspaper office Can she find the documentation she needs to take down the mine owner? Help comes from an unlikely source Strengths As much as I am against tween parents dying it was a much likely occurrence in 1905 There are not as many books set in this time period out west as one would think This had a lot of interesting things in it included the important role of newspapers in town life at the time Weaknesses A bit on the long side and not blessed with a great cover What I really think I love the Caroline Lawrence PK Pinkerton Mysteries series set out west but it just does not circulate
