The second in a trilogy. For middle grade children who love history and fantasy. Could be a good introduction to historical fiction, as well. Male and female protagonists who have a sweet friendship. The trilogy moves back and forth in time in England and New York City.
This is a great read-aloud chapter book, in part because it’s so nuanced and complicated you almost don’t want your kids reading it alone in their rooms, where you can’t even harass them about what they’re feeling and why.
