Booklist Review: "Gr. 4-7. This entry in the History Mysteries series, set just before the outbreak of the French and Indian War, provides both a glimpse at social history and a powerful message about prejudice. In 1752, 10-year-old Rebecca Percy and her little sister watch from a hiding place as the Abenaki Indians take their parents captive. The horror leaves the sisters with a bone-deep hatred for the Indians--and two engraved spoons from England, which figure in the mystery. The girls are taken to live with the Widow Tyler in Fort Number Four in New Hampshire. Their lives (and the lives of others in the small community) are disrupted again by the arrival of a 14-year-old "white Indian" boy, captured by the Indians when he was small and now totally assimilated into Abenaki culture. When the girls' precious spoons are stolen and Indians raid the fort, the boy is suspected of both thievery and treachery. Rebecca's efforts to search out the truth put her in satisfyingly heart-stopping danger. An overview of the French and Indian War follows the story. --Connie Fletcher"
