Read a Book by a Favorite Author

I read a book to earn this badge: 
Will Sparrow's Road by Karen Cushman

Will Sparrow's road by Karen Cushman — I couldn't get into Will's character until about halfway through the book, when he started to open himself up to some of the other characters. I typically really enjoy Cushman's novels, and this one was fine, but was lacking some of the spice or polish of her other stories.

Catherine, called Birdy by Karen Cushman — This is my favorite of Karen Cushman's books - the diary of a medieval young girl who is being arranged into marriage. Catherine has plenty of personality, and the history comes through in her diary entries much more smoothly than it does in Will's tale.
