Helen of Sparta is what we would call today a tomboy. Only because she does not want to learn what a girl should learn in Ancient Greece. Helen wants to learn what her brothers are being taught which is sword play and other combat training things.

How far will this hard-headed girl go to find her adventure?  But will she be able to make it to as far as she wants to go without making enemies?

I loved this book so much. I strongly recommend it to girls , but guys might like it also. There is a lot of history in this book and a lot of talk about the Greek Gods (Zeus, Poseidon, and Helen’s favorite goddess; Aphrodite). But it is a fast paced book and is totally worth your time!
