    I have always loved reading about Joan of Arc. A teenage girl in the 1400s is raised above her station and called by God to fight among men and unite France. It's amazing for it's time.

Admittedly, I found myself continuously comparing this novel to David Elliott's Voices that was published back in March o...

    Stephanie Hemphill explains in a note before the book begins that she chose to call Joan of Arc Jehanne because that was how she referred to herself. Also, like her other books, this is a novel in verse.I didn't know very much about Joan of Arc before reading this book. (Young girl hears voices from...
