Me on Waiting on Wednesday (208)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: The Revelation of Louisa May
Author: Michaela MacColl
Release Date: April 14, 2015
Publisher: Chronicle Books

From Goodreads:

Louisa May Alcott can't believe it—her mother is leaving for the summer to earn money for the family and Louisa is to be in charge of the household. How will she find the time to write her stories, much less have any adventures of her own? But before long, Louisa finds herself juggling her temperamental father, a mysterious murder, a fugitive seeking refuge along the Underground Railroad, and blossoming love. Intertwining fact, fiction, and quotes from Little Women, Michaela MacColl has crafted another spunky heroine whose story will keep readers turning pages until the very end.

These books have grown on me, first with Nobody's Secret and then Always Emily. It's still a bit strange, reading stories about real people, based off of their real lives, but featuring fictional events and mysteries and murders that need solving. I can't completely suspend my disbelief, but I'm close. I do get sad when I read these books, though, and it's because of the romance aspect. The first two books introduced potential romances for the young writers, but they would never come to pass because they were fictional.
