    This book is a fast-moving, immensly witty, and entertaining book. Catherine is a rather independent and stubborn young teen living in the 1200's. Written as her personal diary, it explains her escapades and efforts she goes to in order to disgust future suitors. Her pranks, jokes, and personal achievments are entertainig to read about- not to mention the cures they come up with!

      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!
