First Test (Protector of the Small, #1)
First Test, by Tamora Pierce is the story of a girl named Kel who wants nothing more than to become a night. This is a small probably given the sexist harsh world she lives in where women are not allowed to be warriors and are expected to be good cooking and cleaning wives. In order to become a night she enlists in page duties (the first step in the path to knighthood) as young boy. Three major themes in this book are, the rights of women, whether or not a lying is ever okay and the ability to do anything you put your mind to. Due to the books ability to show that good will prevail no matter what and that in the real world sex means less than most people think I LOVED this book. For many people this book might be weird and I definitely wouldn't recommend it them but to people like me that love a good fantasy novel every once in a while this is definitely a book worth checking out. Due to all these things I would give the book an 8/8.5 out of ten.
