As defined by Read, Write, Think:
The genre of historical fiction in the field of children’s literature includes stories that are written to portray a time period or convey information about a specific time period or an historical event. Usually the event or time period is about 30 years in the past.
Often historical fiction is based in fact and a lot of research. The events were real but a fictional person has been inserted or a real person has been placed into a believable set of events. Readers of historical fiction often respond to a text by loving it or hating it – black and white opposites – not lukewarm gray middle of the road.
Someone on Twitter or in a blog post recommended The War That Saved My Life. I was busy. Put it on my list. After a reading drought, I consulted my list and based on the Amazon Review it was quickly added to my kindle.
