I’ve come to feel YA historical is a bit of an oxymoron, at least in the current U.S. market. So many so-called YA historicals I’ve seen in the last 10 years or so seem more focused on a young person (often written as much more modern) who just happens to be living through history, instead of putting the focus on the history and featuring characters who just happen to be young. There’s also the whole issue of teenagers and even preteens of 50+ years ago being more mature than their modern counterparts, with different obligations and responsibilities.

Women are better at studying since they can keep their focus and concentration for
many hours. Depending on your choice of colour,
your choice of silk knots can indicate your mood for the day.
Dream Telepathy is definitely an amazing application to make use of.

A lot of advice that is available to guys is just plain wrong, probably because it was written for guys by a guy.
