Myers, Anna. Assassin

Myers, Anna. Assassin. Walker, 2005 [0-8027-8989-7]
This piece of historical fiction is told in alternating chapters by two people. One is a fictitious girl and the other, John Wilkes Booth. It is a very readable tale of the prelude to the Lincoln assassination and gets into the mind of John Wilkes Booth and his rationale for his deed. This 212 page book is much more approachable by more students than Rinaldi's "In an acquaintance with darkness" which partially covers the same period. If you school studies the Civil War, this is a must-have piece of historical fiction.
