Engaging middle grade historical fiction
A lot of people are hesitant to pick up a book if it is labeled historical fiction.
What they don't realize is that historical fiction is not that different from the sometimes more "glamorous" fantasy novels -- both are set in a world different from the one we know today. I find exploring different worlds, whether they are fantastical or historical, extremely interesting which is why I love both genres.
What follows is a very abbreviated list of some of my favorite historical fiction titles which I believe would interest even the most reluctant historian.
