Catherine, Called Birdy
From Library Staff
In this fictional journal, a thirteenth-century English girl records the events of her life, including her effort to avoid marriage.
A less romantic view of medieval times than is common in kids' fiction, including fleas, strict gender roles, and feisty (mild) curses from the 14-year-old heroine. Written as a journal, it's a fast read for the younger set. I stole it from my kid and read it laughing all the way. (Seana's pick)
The thirteen-year-old daughter of an English country knight keeps a journal in which she records the events of her life, particularly her longing for adventures beyond the usual role of women and her efforts to avoid being married off.
