Description


Bet feels confined by her place--neither family nor servant--in the home of her wealthy benefactor. Will, the boy who's been like a brother to her since they were four, is unhappy with his fate as well. So Bet makes a plan: She'll pretend she's a boy and take Will's place at school.
When she arrives at school, Bet finds boys act rather brutish when they don't think there's a girl in their midst. But brutish Bet can handle it. It's the stirrings of attraction for her roommate that get Bet into real trouble.

Praise For…


"With nods to Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night and Isaac Bashevis Singer’s "Yentl the Yeshiva Boy," Bet’s descriptive, intimate, first-person narrative incorporates historical details and diverse characters, including adult female allies at school...historical-fiction fans will likely find Bet an appealingly lively heroine as she pursues her dreams and makes unexpected discoveries in learning, life, and love."--Booklist
