Rated 1 out of 5 by from Badly written This novel was written very badly that I felt that it should have been for a grade four's reading level. It also dragged on and on about Angeline's days, which were all very similar. It was somewhat educational, since the protagonist, Angeline, was a part of the Children's Crusade of 1212 A.D. The crusade was unsuccessful, and Angeline was sold as a slave in Egypt, and that is where the novel began. Only read Angeline if you are interested in how a slave is treated, otherwise don't waste your time: there are many more great novels out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderous work of historical fiction A wonderous work of historical fiction, Angeline is a fast-paced yet relaxing read. Set in the blistering heat of thirteenth century Egypt, our young protagonist Angeline is found at the centre of an ancient, but real crusade of children, that took place hundreds of years ago. In this true event of the 1200s, author Karleen Bradford begins to construct her own fictional story of what happened; as her plot unfolds, Angeline becomes her re-enactment of the plight of a shipful of kids who were destined to save Jerusalem, but end up fooled, trapped, and sold to slavery in the scorching hot markets of Egypt. An extraordinary, moving tale chock full of emotion and deep feeling, Angeline explores the thirteenth century war of religions, and the possibility to understand each and have all religions coexist peacefully. A conflict that took place over 700 years ago, the themes and morals of Angeline still hold true today. It is an awe-inspiring display of how little our species has changed over time. Marvelous and fast-paced, Angeline is a pleasure to read; I would recommend it to anyone over the age of 14. A package this good deserves 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WOW! This is a heart warming tale that is an easy read and does not drag on. It is a very good story. I am glad i got my copy. I love how it takes place so far back in time and how the main characters heal from their pasts with time. this book is definately worth reading. I loved this book, but enjoy books that are a little more advanced than this one.
