Historical Fiction Friday

I was sick yesterday so I didn't do Historical Fiction Friday. So I'll do it on Saturday. In today's spotlight is A Wish After Midnight by Zetta Elliott.

It sounds like an interesting novel, and the publisher also gave me a copy to review. Looking forward to it. Below is a summary.

Here is a summary:
Genna is a fifteen-year-old girl who wants out of her tough Brooklyn neighborhood. But she gets more than she bargained for when a wish gone awry transports her back in time. Facing the perilous realities of Civil War–era Brooklyn, Genna must use all her wits to survive. In the tradition of Octavia Butler’s Kindred and Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, A Wish After Midnight is the affecting and inspiring tale of a fearless young woman’s fight to hold on to her individuality and her humanity in two different worlds.
