Lucianna (lucianna77) | 1 comments Hello I got a stumper a few days ago. A 14 year old girl came in asking for a historical fiction book that is also a chicklet. I suggested a few books for her but she didn't like them. The ones I suggested was Catherine Called Birdy, the American Girl Series, etc..
any suggestions?

Lynn Biederman | 5 comments How about The Red Tent by Anita Diamant? It's historical fiction with characters you really connect with. It's based on the story of Dinah in the bible--it's intense and rich and will grab and stay with reader long after they've fiished it.14 is not too young to appreciate this beautiful masterpiece.

A Filthy Youth groupie A Great and Terrible Beauty was good.
The Luxe is like one of my favorite books.

Emily Farrar (ameraq) A Great and Terrible Beauty trilogy was great, (I met the author Libba Bray and she was so FUNNY)... I really liked Time Enough for Drums by Ann Rinaldi.

I really want to read The Luxe... Maybe I should...
