Kristina Perrigoue, October 13, 2010 (view all comments by Kristina Perrigoue)
Wow. I would just like to start off by saying that this is one of the most moving books you will read. The Fifth of March is the story of one girl's experience before and during the Boston Massacre. Ann Rinaldi does an amazing job at making you believe that you are actually back in time during the pre-revolution days. I got to understand so much about their culture and feelings of the British. This book was so powerful and trust me it is not just one of "those historical novels". It actually engages the reader and are devouring the book before the theird chapter. I would suggest this to any reader. You will not be disappointed.
