    PDF or EBOOK (Jackaroo) I guess so many people have this shelved as a fantasy because of the alternate history aspect to the story We never really know it takes place in OUR past and no real world names that I know of are given for places But there isn't any magic or sorcery The School Library Journal calls this an intense and elegantly written

    PDF or EBOOK (Jackaroo) review Jackaroo 35 I read this twice probably first in middle school and then again while I was in high school I really like that the heroine dressed as a male and was able to help people like Robin Hood I love stories of girls dressing as boys and taking on other rolesThe hero liked her sister but her sister married someone else So I had

    PDF or EBOOK (Jackaroo) As I started reading this I realized I had started it before and never finished I suppose that is what kept me at it this time My expectations were a bit too high I had heard this compared to Robin Hood or even Scarlet Pimpernel so as I read I was a little disappointed in the story I think it had a lot of promise but it wa

review Jackaroo

Jackaroo review ¾ 3 download Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB À Cynthia Voigt False they were all of them false the stories; as false as the stories of fairies dancing in moonlight glades on Midsummer NightBut they served a purpose In a distant time and far off kingdom life is hard People don't have enough to eat and winter is upon them There's. I wasn t entirely sure what to expect when I picked up this book Even the reviews I read didn t seem to prepare me maybe because it is not an easy book to review Although the Jackaroo stories in this book definitely mimic Robin Hood tales this is not a Robin Hood story More than anything else this is a coming of age story about Gwyn the Innkeeper s daughter Gwyn lives in the Kingdom which could be in any European or imaginary area that has mountains forests a river and a coast The feudal system rules the culture and society and the Kingdom is in turmoil due to hungry peasants political unrest among the Lords and just the hardships of life in general In such a time people find comfort in old stories about Jackaroo the masked man who would steal ill gotten gains from the Bailiff and return them to the poor Gwyn is at the age when she must either decide who to marry or declare that she will be single for life In deciding this uestion facing adventures that come her way such as finding a complete Jackaroo costume and wrestling with the injustices she sees around her she discovers much about herself her family and her place in the world I liked Gwyn mainly for how dynamic Cynthia Voigt made her She is both the head strong independent smart spunky and capable girl but also the dreamer idealist who does not always get things right and sometimes admits she needs help She is also honestly struggling with what in the world to do with her future her options are getting fewer and fewer sometimes by her own doing and sometimes by the limits of the age she lives in I love how she is willing to fight for justice and change in society but I also like that Ms Voigt made the story realistic in that change does not happen overnight and sometimes the best laid plans backfire when the poor don t know how to manage sudden increases in fortuneAnother thing I really liked is the theme of masks How Gwyn felt she had to wear a mask to conceal her true self around most people and how she discovers that many others seem to be wearing masks as well A great discussion starter especially for teen and adult readers who struggle with being real in front of peersThe only downside I found was that the edition I read was not edited well I read the Simon Pulse first edition and there were spelling mistakes all over the place Most of them were things spell check would not catch like the was accidentally written as she The worst one though was when Blithe one of Gwyn s sisters was actually spelled Blythe I also felt at one point like a whole paragraph was missing The conversation was interrupted and changed so suddenly I looked at the page numbers to make sure one wasn t missing It said p82 then p83 but with all the spelling errors I wouldn t be surprised if they left out a sentence or paragraph I hope these were fixed in further editions

A fascinating idea for a fairy tale with a disappointingly Tolkien esue endingGwyn is the spirited daughter of the village innkeeper who dreams of something outside the mold Her family doesn t understand her because she doesn t want to marry but instead wants to run her father s inn which will legally go to her useless little brother instead While traversing the mountains with the Lord and his son and the enigmatic stablehand Burl she is separated from the party and winds up having to spend part of the winter trapped in a hut with the Lord s son While cleaning out the cupboards she discovers an outfit and weapons that can only belong to the famous Jackaroo the Robin Hood figure of the Kingdom As the story progresses Gwyn views injustice after injustice until finally deciding to take the mantle of Jackaroo on herself Though her heart is big and her fighting is decent she isn t cut out for the outlaw life and she discovers to her surprise that Jackaroo may not be just one personI wanted to like this story and I did for most of it Gwyn is plucky and I like it when girls don t meekly go into whatever is expected of then But it grated on me that people were constantly putting her down and she wasn t saying or doing anything to defend herself We get to listen to a constant stream of hinted and outright abuse including from Cam the boy shelikes I guess that s the impression we re supposed to get but mostly I got that he was an asshole and she sort of liked him but hated him all at once I knew from the first moment of Burl s introduction that he would be a love interest but we are not treated to any sort of chemistry between him and Gwyn at all throughout the entire story Then at the very very end all of a sudden BAM Tolkin I mean Voight gives us the fairy tale ending between the logical male and female characters even though no love has been developed between them at allMost disappointing I was hoping for from such a neat sounding book series
