The Family Romanov - 2 votes

Dianne and I totally enjoyed all three books, but in the end our votes go to The Family Romanov. I almost voted for Crossover but a couple of my grade 7 students persuaded me not to. Although they found the story interesting they did not particularly like the style of writing. We were both glad to have the opportunity to read The Thing about Jellyfish, but in the end we feel that The Family Romanov provides that rare history gem that kids might actually find interesting.
Two votes for The Family Romanov!
Deb and Dianne
