Not a bad YA as YA's go, certainly one I'm sure many 13-15 year olds would enjoy. I tech this age group and therefore read these kind of texts sometimes, not literature but good enough.
Only just a pick for its solid narrative. It wasn't a page turner but certainly an interesting historical fiction. I loved the feeling of place that characters had as I understand this experience. I read it slowly, one chapter at a time as though they were short stories without losing the arc. I wouldn't call it literature but certainly a worthwhile read. A TBR completed.
