Happy Birthday Karen!

It's Karen Cushman's birthday!  Here are the Young Adult books we have by her, so check one out to celebrate her birthday!

In medieval England, a nameless, homeless girl is taken in by a sharp-tempered midwife, and in spite of obstacles and hardship, eventually gains the three things she most wants: a full belly, a contented heart, and a place in this world.
In 1573, the crippled, scorned, and destitute Meggy Swann goes to London, where she meets her father, an impoverished alchemist, and eventually discovers that although her legs are bent and weak, she has many other strengths.
I have read both and they are both excellent.  Another one that we don't have but is a old favorite of mine is Catherine, Called Birdy.  Try requesting it from another library!
