On the eighth day of YA book recommendations, I’m sharing a historical fiction free verse novel!
If you are looking for a feminist historical fiction novel, Blood Water Paint is for you. It tells the haunting and powerful story of Artemisia Gentileschi, a famous Italian painter in the 17th century. Told through free verse poetry, this novel will transport you to a different time that still feels similar to our own (especially with the #MeToo movement still fresh on all of our minds).
