One for All
Set in seventeenth-century France, this story follows Tania, the daughter of a former French musketeer who was mysteriously murdered. Tania was also born with a heart condition and is considered the “sick girl” in town. Unable to integrate into traditional society, Tania fulfills her father’s dying wish and joins a group of powerful women, developing strong bonds with them as the new Musketeers, and learns to fight for what she loves. Suitable for a Grade 9–10 classroom because of its historical setting and time period, this book may be of particular interest to students interested in historical fiction depicting ableism. The novel lends itself to a classroom library and a literature circle or an independent novel choice.
