All the way up the river she's been holding back somehow, waiting. Now you'll both have to wait. I'm not going to disappoint her, Kit. When I take you on board the Witch, it's going to be for keeps. -Nat, from The Witch of Blackbird PondHere's a book I haven't talked about much.
|Yes, that's a picture of my blog post on the computer screen. :D|
Firstly, the top reasons it's worth reviewing(we'll skip a synopsis this time, you could look it up on Goodreads if you're interested):
1. It's a YA novel I actually liked(YA is a category sadly neglected in my reading choices).
2. It's informative.
3. It mixes romance, action, and history well.
4. It's not too long nor too short.
Likely my fourth point sounded a little odd. I included that because some books(*coughcoughLesMiserablescoughcough*) drag, and then others are so good, you wish they'd last longer.
Approximate Age Range- Although marked as a Young Adult novel, there's nothing to make it inappropriate for 10 yr. +
Number of Pages- Obviously this depends on the copy, but my medium-font-edition is 249 pg.
Favorite Character- Kit
