All's Faire in Middle School

by Victoria Jamieson. New York, NY: Dial Books, 2017

Until now, Imogene's been homeschooled by her parents who work at the Renaissance Faire. She is now a Squire-in-Training and her quest is to survive middle school. The story is sensitively and beautifully told and this book is a wonderful motivator when studying the Renaissance and being different from others.

Published only one week before our publication deadline, it has already received starred reviews from Kirkus and Publishers Weekly; is a New York Times Editor's Choice, and An Autumn Kids' Indie Next List top pick.

Grades 4-8
