I really love all of Elizabeth Wein's books, if history had been this interesting and fun in school I might have done much better, and definitely gotten better grades. These are not girly books but at the same time I love that her main characters never looses site of who they are or what they want, just awesome strong female main characters that everybody will fall in love with and cheer for.
