Not Too Bad
Barnes & Noble calls this book Young Adult. Another website says ages 10 and up. I don't know which I would agree with more, but as an eleven-year-old I walk the line between teen and independent reader, and I thought this was a good book. As you see in my I Also Recommend section, this book has the likable character voice of Lauren Myracle's Winnie Years books and the authentic history of Julia Golding's Cat Royal books. Mina Edelman, the main character, is so funny and realistic with a very distinct voice. In addition, My Life With the Lincolns taught me about both Abraham Lincoln and the Chicago Freedom Movement at once, seemingly an unusual combination that has perfect harmony. Mina's love and affection for her sister Tabby warmed my heart, as well as the fact that Mina writes a newsletter called the Lincoln Log (I am a writer myself). It gave me a good taste of life in 1966 too. I would recommend this to fans of historical fiction.
