This book was entered into the Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards and received some good comments from the judge. The prime question is typed below in its entirety.
“What did you like best about this book?
A great deal of historical research obviously went into this book in order to blend characters, plot and setting, and I think the effort paid off for the author. I especially liked the historical notes at the end of the book, as well as the reading list. It shows me that the author knows his [sic] audience and opts to entertain as well as educate, which is ideal for readership of this age. In addition, the choice to write in first person served the storyline and character development well. The vocabulary works well for the reader demographic, while still challenging them slightly.”
