    Namesake summary ↠ 8 NamesakeWhat the This book is so random and weird It is also in serious need of a good revamp editing and an author who knows how teenagers speak and act The good thing about this book is that it is very well researched in the historical aspects That is in fact the only good thing The story is disjointed Extremely disjointed The writing is juvenile at best The novel reads like a first or second draft rather than a polished story The characters are ridiculous unbelievable and all carbon copies of each other Their relationships are unbelievable and well stupid It's just a dumb book Do not recommend

    Namesake summary ↠ 8 Namesakethis book is an example of gripping historical fiction for young readers I think that the book's premise and characters are its two strongest appeal factors First off the idea that an average 15 year old stumbles into the life of another 15 year old is intriguing Readers who aren't already familiar with Lady Jane Grey will be fascinated by this teenager ueen who sat on the throne for only 9 days The author's skillful writing translates a historical event into an experience that young readers will be able to visualize and with which they will sympathize I found that the chara
