2011 YA Historical Fiction Challenge (K)

YA Bliss is hosting a challenge for 2011 to read YA Historical Fiction novels - a genre I wish I read more of.

I'm going for Level 3: 15 YA HF books in 2011

I can do it!

I'm not going to make a list. Middle Grade HF books count as well, which is great and will make my goal that much easier. I'll keep updating this post monthly with titles read.
