Read in December, 2009

I picked this book up from the top of a pile of young-adult fiction brought in by my wife, lying in our room, and didn't put it down until I finished it. They page layout was beautiful, separating dated journal entries from chronological chapters, weaving memory and current story-telling throughout the book. The events only took place over the course of a few weeks in history, but not once during the read was I bored or questioning the author's intent. Everything about it was beautifully written. I would say "woven" again, because it was like a tapestry. Or, even better, a very originally sewn, extravagant hat from the nineteen twenties. I would classify it lovingly as historical fiction. Right up there with The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle.
