    Namesake MOBI Ì ´ Kindle fobi lieser.de namesake pdf, Namesake ePUBWhat the? This book is so random and weird It is also in serious need of a good revamp editing and an author who knows how teenagers speak and act The good thing about this book is that it is very well researched in the historical aspects That is in fact the only good thing The story is disjointed Extremely disjointed The writing is juvenile at best The novel reads like a first or second draft rather than a polished story The characters are ridiculous unbelievable and all carbon copies of each other Their relationships are unbelievable and well stupid It's just a dumb book Do not recommend

    Namesake MOBI Ì ´ Kindle fobi lieser.de namesake pdf, Namesake ePUBNamesake is a beautifully written story about Jane a teen who is forced to tolerate the tyranny of an erratic alcoholic mother At first she finds solace by travelling back in time to meet the subject and namesake of her school history project Lady Jane Grey ueen of England for 9 days in 1553 But Jane soon realizes that the similarity between the two girls isn't just in name it's in life prognosis Lady Jane is about to be executed and Jane? Well she may as well die if she can't break free from her motherThough Sue MacLeod puts aside her poet hat to write this debut novel you'd think she'd been writing novels forever Just the right amount of history poetry and tension puts this time travelling novel in a category of it's own is it fantasy? It doesn't feel like it MacLeod writes so clearly in touch with every element of wonder that might come with time travel that I forgot it was a fantasy novelThis would be a great class read for high school English Lots to discuss
