Catherine, Called Birdy (Summer Reading Edition)

Catherine, Called Birdy - Karen Cushman I fell in love with this book as a child, and decided to revisit it now as an adult who loves medieval historical fiction. I found Catherine to be every bit as enjoyable as I’d remembered. The diary format is both informative and hilarious concerning everyday life in the Middle Ages and also delightfully disgusting at times (mucking out the privy, anyone?). The story is charming and the historical details accurate. Highly recommended!
