History and historical fiction has a bad name in certain circles. What a shame, since there are so many centuries to draw from. So many settings, so very many characters (most of them dead now, so we must speak for them, or bring to light forgotten words they once uttered or wrote.)

"How I Became a Pirate" is one such book. Let's hear about more favorite historicals for kids and young adults.

"Under the Black Flag" by noted British historian David Cordingly is great for saavy young readers, and adults young and old.

"Star-Crossed" is one that features a teenaged girl during the age-of-sail. The New York Public Library picked it to be among the BOOKS FOR THE TEEN AGE -- 2007.
