Description

"A rousing, funny, feminist workplace fantasy that also takes a frank look at modern poverty." – Kirkus

Moxie
meets A Knight’s Tale as Kit Sweetly slays sexism, bad bosses, and bad luck to become a knight at a medieval-themed restaurant.


Working as a Wench—i.e. waitress—at a cheesy medieval-themed restaurant in the Chicago suburbs, Kit Sweetly dreams of being a Knight like her brother. She has the moves, is capable on a horse, and desperately needs the raise that comes with knighthood, so she can help her mom pay the mortgage and hold a spot at her dream college.

Company policy allows only guys to be Knights. So when Kit takes her brother’s place, clobbers the Green Knight, and reveals her identity at the end of the show, she rockets into internet fame and a whole lot of trouble with the management. But this Girl Knight won’t go down without a fight. As other Wenches and cast members join her quest, a protest forms. In a joust before Castle executives, they’ll prove that gender restrictions should stay medieval—if they don’t get fired first.

This was ridiculously charming and a lot of fun to read. I dare anyone to pick it up and not want to saddle up a horse, pick up a lance, and fight alongside KIt and her bevy of knights. Its level of charm is that infectious. Plus, it's refreshing to read about a protagonist from a working class family that struggles with money in YA. It shouldn't be that rare to find in young adult fiction, but it is. Full of warmth and delight, I recommend THE LIFE AND (MEDIEVAL) TIMES OF KIT SWEETLY to anyone seeking a read that leaves them just feeling good by the time they finish.
