Honestly, I think I'm a bigger fan of Laurie Halse Anderson's blog (whose feed I subscribe to) than I am of her books. That being said, this is truly an excellent book: well-researched, engaging (especially because I usually don't enjoy historical fiction), and heartbreaking. I didn't want the story to end...I was pretty upset with the last page of the book!

I also love the cover and the way each chapter employs primary documents to advance the plot. Even the typeface is spot-on. This elevates her craft to a higher level. Well done!
