Ann Rinaldi draws you in every time even if you know what's going to happen to the main character. Interesting to read with Rinaldi's other book "Nine Days a Queen."

Despite having left my teen years far behind, Rinaldi does a superb job of capturing female adolescence and making her characters easy to relate to and likable.

This wasn't my favorite, but was an interesting take on a well known historical figure. I prefer her other novels where she focuses on a fictional character who represents what a typical person may have experienced during a well document historical period. I also really like how she explains what was fact and fiction at the end of her novels in terms of actions taken by the characters or events they experienced.

Ann Rinaldi

Ann Rinaldi writes great historical fiction. This isn't her best work and I would say is written for younger ages than some of her other books
