The Johnstown Flood

an Up2U Historical Fiction Adventure (2014)
The Johnstown Flood


This historical fiction chapter book for grades 2-4 features a young girl named Sarah Beth and her friend Vincent as they try to save what they can from their home from the flood that will soon come to Johnstown, Pennsylvania.  I was looking forward to this book, knowing that it was a "choose your own adventure" type story, however I was disappointed that there are only three possible endings in the story.  The reading is easy and the story is straightforward.  For more about the Johnstown Flood, try Johnstown flood : the day the dam burst.
