If you love historical fiction the way I do, here's a great new YA title to check out by author Tanya Landman (I Am Apache). The Goldsmith's Daughter releases Tuesday, September 8.
conquest of Mexico, this story explores the devastating collision of cultures through the eyes of the teenage Itacate. I haven't found too many novels written in this setting, so this is definitely one to add to the list for a study of pre-U.S. American history.
