Praise for SOLDIER’S SECRET:
* “Klass expertly fills in the gaps, drawing a portrait of a proud girl who, from her early fascination with Joan of Arc, becomes entranced with the idea of a real-life ‘heroine.’. . . An admirable accomplishment.” —Booklist, starred review
“The real-life Deborah Sampson’s experiences dressing as a man for two years to serve as a soldier during the Revolutionary War form the foundation of Klass’s provocative historical novel. . . . It’s Klass’s telling use of details that brings this story to life.” —Publishers Weekly
“The writing is clear and concise, and Deborah’s voice rings with authenticity. An excellent choice for fans of historical fiction, fictionalized biographies, and stories about brave women.” —School Library Journal
