(Just as a side note the next few books that I review I read a while a go, anywhere from a few months, till right about now.)
I was actually very surprised at how much I liked this book. I must say that I was not that keen on the writing style of the author.... Thought she was very good at coming up with the story... LOVED the characters, but I was not really that crazy, on how she wrote it... Like I was not happy with the way she used her words... In fact I disliked it so much that I almost did not read it! But I stuck with it, and I really LIKED IT!!!! So very happy with it! I thought that the characters were very believable, and I was happy about that... I would recommend it for anyone looking for an easy read, that likes historical fiction!

Plot:
Determined not to marry the man her father has chosen for her, thirteen-year-old Judith disguises herself as a boy and sets off to become one of the King's Minstrels, yet the journey is long and so she must use her wits to keep herself safe and her identity hidden.
