    One thought on “Maggie's Door

    1. Donna on said:

      I loved the premise of this children s book It was creative and well thought out Members of 2 families trying to escape hunger in Ireland by taking a boat to America in search of Maggie s door I liked the character development the most in this and even the dialogue was well used The sense of place was well done too I think I even own a copy of this somewhere in my children s pile of books.

    2. 538am_Kelly O'Hara on said:

      Written by award winning author Patricia Reilly Giff Newbery Honor Book and ALA Notable Books , Maggie s Door portrays the harrowing journey of Nory and Sean, Irish youth who are escaping the potato famine of the 1840s Detailed descriptions of extreme hunger, terrible shipboard conditions, and the loss of loved ones make this a tense book at times But the story will help 5th 7th grade students understand why people left their home countries to become immigrants to America There was nothing left [...]

      i read this book last year for a book report and i love it mainly cuz it takes place in Ireland

    4. Caitlin Fogerty on said:

      This short novel does not shy away from the extremely harsh realities that Irish immigrants faced during the Great Potato Famine It depicts their harrowing journey with only slivers of hope along the way, and ends in a way that is not entirely happy Nevertheless, it reveals the strength of the human spirit to persevere despite tremendous hardship in the fight for family, healing, and new beginnings I read a lot of historical fiction as a kid, and looking back, I realize what a deep role this pla [...]

    5. Darlene Dickson on said:

      I REALLY appreciate this book I enjoy books, even those that are a little hard to read because of the pain of the characters in the book This historical fiction gives us a ground level look at what it must have been like to be one of the million plus Irish who fled their homeland because of the potato blight It heralds the courage people can muster for the love of their family and the drive to be reunited with them I think it had many heroes and it helped me want to be a better person and endure [...]

    6. Rachel on said:

      This goes right along with our history study this year on Irish potato famine and immigrants going to the U.S Does mention some about how the English landlords oppressed the Irish It s too short to go into much depth, but the characters are believable I enjoyed it, especially since I could picture my own ancestors living during this time Wish I could read the first one, but I have to wait until the library gets it.

    7. Erin on said:

      After reading Nory Ryan s Song, my daughter and I were curious if they all ever made it to America, so we listened to this on audiobook Sometimes we forget no only how hard it would have been to get a ticket for a ship to America, but also how hard the trip would have been Great story, and now we re on to book 3

    8. Judy on said:

      Fascinating and historically accurate sequel to Nory Ryan s Song, detailing the grueling trip by foot to Galway, then by ship to America, told from the point of view of both Nory and her friend Sean Loved the narration.

    9. Adelle on said:

      This book was so sad It was the sequel to Nory Ryan s Song, and I expected it to resolve better and have hope, but it felt lacking there Maybe the third book Water Street will finalize some of the story.

    10. Casle on said:

      Nory Ryan s Song continued Nory is leaving Ireland Just getting to the ship is fraught with peril and hunger The ship is also dangerous and Nory doesn t know that someone she knows is on board Another excellent book by an excellent author.

    11. Nancy on said:

      Sequel to Nory Ryan s Song about the potato famine in Ireland, and the absence of help, especially from the English government which ruthlessly ruled them This showed the strength of the human spirit, the will to survive, and the importance of family.

    12. Melissa Rhoads on said:

      Excellent realistic fiction Perfect for upper elementary kids Highly recommend.

      I picked this book up to read because I was attempting to find 4 different chapter books for my 4th graders that deal with immigration different times, places to America that we could use for literature circles This book is the continuing story of Nory Ryan and her family s life in Ireland I had not read the first book in the series and apparently there is another that follows it , however, it was not necessary to have read the earlier book to understand what is happening This book deals with th [...]

    19. Hannah on said:

      This book follows the adventures of Sean and Nory as they travel to New York City from Ireland It s the sequel to Nory Ryan s Song This book was less depressing than Nory Ryan s Song and had incident in it, which was a plus for me Also it had one very memorable line about the boats that once were used for transporting slaves now being used to transport the Irish The baby romance between Nory and Sean is cute in a barely perceptible sort of way, and her sadness when she believed she might never [...]

    20. Conan Tigard on said:

      I loved the fact that Maggie s Door takes off right where Nory Ryan s Song leaves off I thought that maybe this book would have all been about Nory adjusting to life in Brooklyn, but it wasn t This book is all about Nory and Sean making their way across a desolate land and their struggle to survive the horrifying ship passage to America.Patricia Reilly Giff does and excellent job of creating a setting for the story, which immediately immerses the reading into the tale The storytelling is first r [...]

      Historical Topic and Time Period 19th century Ireland Potato dought Lexile Level 720What I liked The thing that I liked about this book is that it not only told a historically evident story, but also was about family and the love of your friends The story was also very visually compelling with the way it described each individual events.What I disliked This book was simply too easy of a reading level It may have had an interesting story, but I read the book too fast because it was simply easy to [...]

      I read this book over spring break and the word that came to mind when i finshed it was just WOW this was the most amazing books i have read so far in my life i read this book this year and im in seventh grade so this book i would say is mostly for young audults i wouldent let a child read this it does have alot of imagery about burns and sckinees that might scare children heck it even scared me but what im saying is that this book is about a girls journey to america becuase she lives in irealan [...]

      I hadn t realized that there was a sequel to Nory Ryan s Song I am really coming to love this author s work, and as I was looking for a shorter audiobook, this was a great choice However, it is always difficult for me to do one book in print and another in audio It was great listening to the accents and correct pronunciations It gave the book such a flare But I think I missed some possible great parts of the book that wouldn t have happened if I d read the print Still, the book was very good Not [...]

    27. Lauren on said:

      Not as good as its predecessor, mostly because it s missing the spark that made Nory Ryan s Song transform into than a history lesson Maggie s Door picks up as Nory is headed to Galway, where she will catch a ship to America and reunite with her family There are some powerful moments, but they didn t grab me the way similar moments did in the first book The entire book felt like a checklist of what had to happen The narration also switches from the first person used in Nory Ryan s Song, to alte [...]

    28. Brett on said:

      This is not necessarily an easy book to read, but then it isn t an easy topic it s short, but it s intense Picking up where Nory Ryan s Song left off, it follows Nory her dear friend Sean in alternating chapters as they desperately struggle to make it to their married siblings in Brooklyn to the Maggie s Door of the title It will give middle grade readers a good taste of the immigrant experience its numerous challenges both those of the Irish of the last century, all the others who have continue [...]
