Murder for Her Majesty by Beth Hilgartner

Summer’s pick:

Alice Tuckfield is a fugitive. Living in Elizabethan England, she witnesses her father’s murder. Too afraid to go to the authorities, Alice runs away to York in search of a family friend. Before she can reach the friend, however, Alice is taken in by a group of choir boys who disguise her as a boy and sneak her into the cathedral boys’ choir. Safe and happy for the time being, Alice tries to figure out the identities of her father’s murderers. They might be closer than she thinks, though, and Alice could be in more danger than anyone realizes. Infused with humor, danger, and mystery, both boys and girls will enjoy this story because the main characters are male and female. This is a good book for young readers and excellent as a family-friendly read aloud.
