***I was provided with an ARC of this book from BHC Press through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions below are my own.***

What I initially really liked about this book was the concept. As a huge fan of historical fiction and a reader that tries to read as many diverse titles as possible, this book was so exciting to me. While it did not completely live up to what I was hoping for, the book still had some solid merits.

Thank you to and @netgalley for the advance reading copy of this Young Adult novel. It’s publishing date is February 28th, 2020. Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy it. I found the characters to be two-dimensional and the plot line to be totally boring. I teach middle school, and I think it is more suited towards that level as opposed to young adults. It was also coded as historical fiction - but I didn’t really see any historical aspects.
