If you liked "Lucy Rose"...

books that I hope you will enjoy just as much.

In her journal, Rachel chronicles her family's adventures traveling by covered wagon on the Oregon Trail in 1850.

The Private Notebook of Katie Roberts, age 11 / Amy Hest.
In a series of journal entries and letters to a pen pal, Katie relates her feelings about her father's death in World War II, her mother's remarriage, and the family's move from New York City to Texas.

Amelia's Notebook / by Marissa Moss.
The hand-lettered contents of a nine-year-old girl's notebook, in which she records her thoughts and feelings about moving, starting school, and dealing with her older sister, as well as keeping her old best friend and making a new one.
