    I read this book in school, and enjoyed it immensely! This book follows a year in the life of a teen living in the 1200's. Catherine has many adventures as her father tries to marry her off for money. In this book, Catherine describes the faults of living in that time period, with ticks and stinky privies. I giggled a lot as Catherine looked back on her pranks and parties, and trying to escape the grossest, foulest suitor her father could find!
