The Romance of Atlantis is a work of Fantasy or Science Fiction and as the preface states, Ms. Caldwell wrote this novel when she was twelve years of age. Her family ran a publishing company but they wouldn’t publish this novel. Instead, they accused the twelve year old of plagiarism, unconvinced that a girl could write a complete book including realistic adult situations
After reading this story I was impressed that a twelve year old could have the knowledge in her time period to write so well. This is my first reading of anything by Caldwell and her Atlantis is well envisaged however, I really didn’t like the characters much. Since this book is written by a twelve year old who deserves credit where credit is due I give it 5 stars !!
