Tanysha | 3 comments Despite this being deemed by Mallory and Brea as not historical fiction but are there any historical-fiction-esque set in the 90s novels?

I did a quick search on NoveList for 1990s historical fiction and this is what I found. Don't know if any of these are any good, but it's a place to start:

Skyscraping

Prague

Rani Patel in Full Effect

Let Me Hear a Rhyme

Grrrls on the Side

Over a Thousand Hills I Walk with You

Things That Happened Before the Earthquake

How to Lose Everything: A Mostly True Story

Playing in the Light

Second Fiddle

Yeah, NoveList is a librarian's best friend when you're asked for a recommendation in a genre you have little to no experience with. If your library subscribes to it, you should be able to access it.
