Cover: Sarah Emma Edmonds Was a Great Pretender: The True Story of a Civil War Spy

“Jones, in her first departure from novels for teens, tells Sarah’s story with strong simplicity, quoting at times from Sarah’s own memoirs…. Oldroyd’s illustrations convey Sarah’s likeness through all her many disguises, and help readers will see her as both sympathetic and brave. Recommended, especially for middle grades studying the Civil War.” —Kirkus Reviews
