This book is a must-have."--VOYA "Similar in tone to Libba Bray's A Great and Terrible Beauty (2003), this is a perfect read for timid teens who dream of adventure."--Booklist "Well-researched and filled with adventure, romance, and lots of tension--this work of historical fiction has all the elements of an intriguing read."--Kirkus Reviews A Junior Library Guild Selection Nominated for the American Library Association's Best Fiction for Young Adults List
