So, a couple of months ago, I was reading a book called A Murder for Her Majesty by Beth Hilgartner. I think that this is a book suited for 6th-graders and up. It is set in the Elizabethan era. This whole post could be a spoiler alert — so readers beware. Parents, I warn you, this book has murder, fighting, and a kidnapping.
This book is about how an 11-year-old girl, Alice Tuckfield, who witnessed the murder of her father, hides from the murderers by disguising herself as a boy and enlists into an all-boy choir.
The headmistress of the dorm, Dame Agnes, is unaware that Alice is a girl. So are her professors. Only a handful of choir boys actually know Alice is a girl.
I enjoyed this book and think most kids should read this, if for no other reason than to see that you shouldn’t change yourself based on others’ remarks.
