Reviewed by Jocelyn, 10th grader

Alanna, the First Adventure, is the first in an amazing one of a kind series. The medieval setting and plots make it very unique. This story is about two twins who switch roles. It follows Alanna when she changes places with her brother Thom and attends “knight school.” This is the start of a series filled with drama, fights, and romance, as she grows up in a school filled with men.
