Kids @ the Crossroads

Kids @ the Crossroads series
What if the Internet existed at the time of the Crusades, or the Aztecs? What would the blog of a twelve-year-old look like? Historical fiction with the personal immediacy of a blog, as well as the context for understanding these world-changing moments in history. Richly illustrated with original art as well as historical images of maps, paintings, and artefacts that bring the era vividly to life.
