Really Good Book!!

I just finished a book called; Mara Daughter of the Nile. It is a n awesome book, for girls. How a came across it you might ask well, my mom assigned it as a History book, for Egypt. You may draw the line when I say History, but don't with this one! It's not a text book, but a novel! If you like action, suspense, danger, and romance, this is the book for you! ( There's not completely unacceptable romance.) Here's a glimpse;

"A compelling story of adventure, romance, and intrigue, set in ancient Egypt.

Mara is a proud and beautiful slave girl who yearns for freedom. In order to gain it, she finds herself playing the dangerous role of double spy for two arch enemies- each of whom support a contender for the throne of Egypt.

Against her will, Mara finds herself falling in lave with one of her masters, the noble Sheftu, and she starts to believe in his plans of restoring Thutmose III to the throne, But just when Mara is ready to offer Sheftu her help and her heart, her duplicity is discovered, and a battle ensues in which Mara's life and the fate of Egypt are at stake."

"Dangerous espionage, an unusual love story, and rightly drawn background make this book a capture quick and lasting interest"
-Horn Book

"Thoroughly engrossing."
-Kirikus Reviews

This book is awesome! When you first start reading, you think it's going to be another one of those boring books, KEEP READING!! It was published by Puffin book. Author: Eloise Jarvis McGraw.

Thanks for the review, Moriah. I've seen it many times, and almost got it once; but judging from the beginning I thought, like you, that it would be another one of those boring ancient history stories! :) Next time I see it I'll be sure to get it though!

Good night,
