Really enjoyed it, will have to read the rest of the series. I felt it was stronger in the beginning, where Crispin behaved in ways that are almost inexplicable by today’s standards( returning home when he clearly should have run) but, as the book progressed, he stated doing things that seemed unlikely for him(sneaking off). All in all though, held my interest ( )

The Cross of Lead is a good historical fiction YA novel without a gimmick, which, frankly, I'm happy about. I'm a little tired of wizard and dragon schools, dystopian novels that hinge on unique gifts, etc. This is an excellent old-fashioned historical novel set in England's Middle Ages. It was a nice adventure with good pacing.

Now, back to the other YA novel I'm reading about a world where fairies and spirits are trying to kill humans, and the main character is at a school to learn how to defeat them and possibly become queen. I mean, I'm not completely against that type of YA novel, only the bad or middling ones. ( )

I enjoyed this book very much. It was interesting and kept me curious about how the characters were going to get out of their tight spots. The end was quite a stretch, though. It did drive me a bit crazy that Cripin kept not following directions and getting himself in deeper trouble, but maybe that was an authentic 13 year old boy thing and I am just a cautious grown-up with no sense of adventure.

Sometimes I ran, sometimes all I could do was walk. All I knew was that if the steward overtook me, I'd not survive for long....

Crispin is a poor thirteen-year-old peasant in medieval England. Accused of a crime he did not commit, he has been declared a "wolf's head," meaning he may be killed on sight, by anyone. He flees his tiny village with nothing but his mother's cross of lead.

In the English countryside, Crispin meets a man named Bear, who forces Crispin to become his servant yet encourages him to think for himself. But as Crispin's enemies draw ever closer, he is pulled right into the fortress of his foes, where he must find a way to save their very lives.

Set in late 1300's England this is an engaging story of an orphan boy who is, for reasons unknown, targeted for execution by his Lord's steward. I appreciated the characters and the well-drawn setting. I felt the ending was just a tad contrived but it didn't spoil it for me.

I will keep an eye out for the sequels! ( )

Rebecca Barnhouse (VOYA, June 2002 (Vol. 25, No. 2))
In 1377 England, mysteries surround thirteen-year-old Crispin, a serf from a rural village who never knows his own name until his mother dies. Nor does he know just who his mother really was--why she was an outcast or how she learned to read and write. Shortly after her burial, Crispin finds himself pursued by men who mean to kill him for reasons he does not understand. He escapes, only to be captured by a huge juggler named Bear. Bear teaches Crispin to sing and play the recorder, and slowly they begin to get to know one another. When they perform in villages and towns, however, they discover that the hunt for Crispin is still in full swing. For Crispin, this situation makes the question of Bear's trustworthiness vital, for Bear has secrets of his own. The suspense stays taut until the very end of the book, when Crispin uncovers his identity and then must decide how to act on that information. His journey to selfhood recalls Alice's in Karen Cushman's The Midwife's Apprentice (Clarion, 1995/VOYA August 1995). Like Alice, Crispin casts off his timidity to make a place for himself within a society that would discard him. As does Cushman, Avi renders the sights, sounds, and smells of medieval England accurately and compellingly. He shows the pervasiveness of the church in medieval society and, in a subplot, weaves in details about John Ball and the Peasant's Rebellion. Exciting and true to the past, this novel is historical fiction at its finest. PLB $16.49. VOYA CODES: 5Q 4P M J (Hard to imagine it being any better written; Broad general YA appeal; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9).
