Fifteen-year-old Constance is looking forward to a new life in the New World. There's nothing left for her in England — no family and no future. She agrees to set sail on the Mayflower, along with her employer. But the ocean crossing is harder than anyone anticipated, and the journey is riddled with dangerous obstacles. Will Constance live to see the New World, or will she and the other passengers be lost at sea?
In this installment from the Girls Survive series, young readers can learn about early American colonial history through the eyes of one girl, just like them. Constance's story will illuminate the hazards of travel for kids used to the advantages of airplanes, and additional resources and supplemental materials will encourage them to learn more about this voyage. It's a compelling way to make history come alive!
