Read full description of the books:



I did like this book and it's a hard choice between three and four stars. The story was interesting, it involves an event I had basically no prior knowledge of and will probably try to read more about later. The pacing of the action was good and I felt the cast of characters was well-rounded. However, as other reviewers have pointed out, this book strays from the typical Dear America model in that the main character is telling a story from her childhood to her granddaughter, who writes it down, rather than the main character writing the events in a diary herself as they are unfolding. It's realistic then for the narrative to lack some of the immediate, urgent-feeling detail and emotion of a diary. So while it's believable and all and a good story, it doesn't have quite the same spark that a well-written "diary" usually has.

Read information about the author

Ebook The Girl Who Chased Away Sorrow: The Diary of Sarah Nita, a Navajo Girl read Online! Ann Warren Turner is a children's author and a poet.
Ann Turner wrote her first story when she was eight years old. It was about a dragon and a dwarf named Puckity. She still uses that story when she talks to students about writing, to show them that they too have stories worth telling.
Turner has always loved to write, but at first she was afraid she couldn't make a living doing it. So she trained to be a teacher instead. After a year of teaching, however, she decided she would rather write books than talk about them in school.
Turner's first children's book was about vultures and was illustrated by her mother. She has written more than 40 books since then, most of them historical picture books. She likes to think of a character in a specific time and place in American history and then tell a story about that character so that readers today can know what it was like to live long ago.
Ann Turner says that stories choose her, rather than the other way around: "I often feel as if I am walking along quietly, minding my own business, when a story creeps up behind me and taps me on the shoulder. 'Tell me, show me, write me!' it whispers in my ear. And if I don't tell that story, it wakes me up in the morning, shakes me out of my favorite afternoon nap, and insists upon being told."
