Library Media Connection - Jaime Jeanne Meadows; St. Helens High School

"These historical fiction books are an interesting blend of text and graphic novels. Each chapter is written from the main character’s point of view. The illustrations are colorful and descriptive but without too much gore or violence. The text is captivating and will hold the interest of the reader. The books include action and danger; the stories are exciting, gritty, and intense. Each book provides instruction on character development, how to be a better person, and how to make good choices and to do the right things. The books are based on historical events; the young man’s perspective is refreshing. Each book has a glossary, a short discussion of the topic, discussion questions, writing prompts, and Internet sites. I really like these titles and suspect they will be popular with reluctant boy readers. Recommended. -Jaime Jeanne Meadows, Library Media Specialist, St. Helens (Oregon) High School" - Library Media Connection
