My love of history made me eager to see True History The Founders Unmasked's new take on history. Despite not containing much new information, this book challenged us to see the Founders in a different light. There is no doubt that many of them contributed to the history of America, but they also had their own flaws, such as actively participating in slavery, which should not be forgotten.

The book is well researched with much of the information supported by historical evidence. Furthermore, it provides readers with a better understanding of the period. There are questions at the end of each chapter that the reader can reflect on. This book would be a great addition to classrooms as it can facilitate thought-provoking discussions.

This book is intended for children ages 10-13 which seems appropriate. In one section, the topic of consent and the life of a concubine was discussed, which may be disturbing for someone not yet mature enough to understand. Overall, the material in the book is easy to understand and presented in an engaging way.
