About the Author

Saundra Mitchell is absolutely, completely, totally crazy about history. If you come to her hometown of Indianapolis, she'll show you the streets named after 19th century trolley stops, where Civil War prisoners were kept, and where the first European cemetery in town used to be. (That's right, they moved it! How creepy is that?) When she's not geeking out about history, she's writing novels for young adults, flipping out about pop culture with her best friend, and seriously embarrassing her kids.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
