School Library Journal - Jennifer Prince, Buncombe County Public Libraries, NC

"In this lively collection, pivotal historical periods are told in the words of young people who lived through them. Each book begins with a two-page introduction that places the diary and its author in a broader historical context. The youthful perspective is refreshing and, at times, unexpected. . . .A useful and new take on history." - School Library Journal
