Girl in Blue
From acclaimed QUILT TRILOGY author Ann Rinaldi comes another gripping historical adventure. Here, a courageous girl disguises herself as a boy and fights in the Civil War.
The year is 1861. When spirited teenager Sarah Louisa learns that she is to be married off to her despicable neighbor, she runs away from home. Disguising herself as a boy, Sarah boldly joins the army--and before long is a soldier in the Civil War. Sarah navigates the joys and hardships of army life, all the while struggling to keep her true identity a secret. But Sarah's real adventure is only just beginning. A chance encounter with a detective soon draws her into a web of mystery, intrigue, and romance--and Sarah's courage will be put to the test as never before.
This book, WOW! I love Ann Rinaldi, her books made me love reading historical fiction and made me love getting into history. This one was just as good as all of the other ones I have read by her. I loved the fact that she dressed up as a man and joined the war, and then was sent to the pinkertons which fascinate me to no end. The whole thing was put together wonderfully and i would highly recommend it!
