Terror in the Harbour!

25 Mar

Title: Terror in the Harbour

Author: Sharon Mackay

Genre: Historical Fiction (also Canadian!)

Recommended Age: 12-14

Scale: 6.5/10


Our Canadian Girls, is a book series for young girls, that examines various themes within different historical settings. The goal of these books is to combine history lessons with great, relatable stories. This particular story is about Penny, who has to grow up very quickly after the Halifax explosion. Her home is destroyed and Penny has to try to keep her family together after the disaster.


This was okay. I enjoy the idea of this series, I’m just not sure about the execution. It seems to me that the Dear Canada series is much better. This book was almost too short to properly get a sense of both the characters andthe tragedy. I’m not sure that I would reccomend this.
