An Acquaintance with Darkness

An Acquaintance with Darkness (Great Episodes) An Acquaintance with Darkness by Ann Rinaldi

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What an excellent choice for YA historical fiction buffs. This book tells the story of 14 year-old Emily, who is friends with the Surratt family, just days before Lincoln is shot. And, Emily's uncle is a famous doctor who robs graves to do medical research. What more can a reader ask for? It is fast-paced, well-researched, and I may even be able to get some of the Maxson students to check it out.
Ann Rinaldi is one of my favorite historical fiction writers.
