    Caramellunacy: Running Out of Time is for a younger crowd (middle school or so), while Pastworld is more firmly rooted in the teen world, but both have a similar premise - a girl living in a tourist attraction without knowing it.

This book would be appropriate for intermediate grades.
This book is about a girl who lives in a small town in the 1800's with her family, or at least that what she believes. That is until diphtheria breaks out and her mother sends her on a mission that will change her life forever.
This book would be interesting for units on life in the 1800's, ethics in scientific research (for older grades), or conversations on the shift in views as we've moved into modern times.

Disclaimer: As she transitions into the modern world she see's Africa American children and refers to them in ways that may not seem respectful to the modern ear. These passages would work well for conversations on historical perspectives or on the abolitionist movement. ( )
