About this title

Synopsis:

Catherine, a spirited and inquisitive young woman of good family, narrates in diary form the story of her fourteenth year?the year 1290. A Newbery Honor Book.

Recensione:

"This unusual book provides an insider?s look at the life of Birdy, 14, the daughter of a minor English nobleman. The year is 1290 and the vehicle for storytelling is the girl?s witty, irreverent diary. . . . Superb historical fiction."?

School Library Journal, Starred

"The period has rarely been presented for young people with such authenticity; the exotic details will intrigue readers while they relate more closely to Birdy?s yen for independence and her sensibilities toward the downtrodden. Her tenacity and ebullient naiveté are extraordinary; at once comic and thought-provoking, this first novel is a delight."
