Alanna: The First Adventure
Reviewer: Book Girl
Author: Tamora Pierce
Picture this: a girl growing up in a medieval style land. You see gowns and fancy dinners. But this book is utterly different: Alanna disguises herself a boy in order to train to become a knight. She is the smallest and weakest of all the pages, but still becomes the close friend of Jonathan, the heir to the throne, after saving his life using her healing magic. But the disease was not natural. There is a dangerous mage out to kill Jonathan, and it is up to Alanna to save his life.
