Makenzie: Midwife's Apprentice

Makenzie's Review

"I am Alyce. Not Brat or Dung Beetle or Beetle. Alyce." -Cover, The Midwife's Apprentice

The Midwife’s Apprentice, by Karen Cushman, is the story of Alyce, a young girl on her quest to find an identity for herself. Along the way, Alyce comes across many ups and downs in her path.

My favorite part was when Alyce finds that she is white under the layer of dirt always piled on her. When she finishes washing the sheep at the manor, she sees her hands are white when they are clean. I think it is funny that Alyce didn’t know she was white.

I would recommend this book if you like historical realistic fiction because the story takes place in Medieval England.
