Leigh Ann’s Civil War by Ann Rinaldi

March 22, 2010 at 5:42 pm Leave a comment

In this fast paced historical fiction, Rinaldi describes and captures life during the Civil War.  Leigh Ann’s dysfunctional family—her mother has taken up with other men, her father is losing his mind and her older brothers are trying to raising her while her brothers are off fighting in the war.  When the mill her family owns is burned to the ground, Leigh Ann and her sisters-in-law are arrested as traitors and forced to go North with Union Soldiers.  Leigh Ann disguises herself as a boy and is able to help her sisters-in-law amid the chaos and dangers of war.  Rinaldi does a great job of creating such a strong and courageous character.  Readers will enjoy this YA.
