The latest from Karen Cushman and the only book she's written with a boy as the main character, Will Sparrow's Road is a lot of fun to read. Will wanders the Elizabethan market fairs, not knowing that he's looking for a real family to join. Cushman adds lots of colorful characters and one wonderful pig. If you are a historical fiction fan, this one's for you.

Not as compelling as Cushman's earlier books. But still an enjoyable story that brings the past to life.

Cushman's efforts were a little disappointing in Will Sparrow.
