You’re one of millions of immigrants leaving your home in the early 1900s to move to the United States. You’re searching for a better life. Ellis Island, near New York City, is your first stop in your search for opportunity and freedom. Officials on the island have been processing immigrants there for decades, but not everyone gets through. If you pass the tests, you’re on your way to a new life in the United States. If you don’t, you may find yourself being sent back to your homeland. What path will you take? Will you: Be a Jewish youth leaving the violence of Russia in hopes of a better life in America? Be an Italian teen who lands at Ellis Island during World War I? A German immigrant who faces deportation? Everything in this book happened to real people. And YOU CHOOSE what you do next. The choices you make could lead you to opportunity, to wealth, to poverty, or even to death.

Baker & Taylor
Describes the experiences of immigrants who left their homes in the early 1900s and came to the United States through Ellis Island, in a book where the reader's choices reveal the historical details from three different perspectives.

A very informative addition to the Interactive History Adventure series. You get to choose between being a young Russian Jewish girl, a teenage Italian boy or a German immigrant. I love how every book in the Interactive History Adventure series has at least one story line for a girl and one for a boy so these books can appeal to a wide audience. I also enjoy the extras at the back of the book and how they encourage kids to investigate the topic of Ellis Island more.
