(click it to take you amazon and buy it!)Now of course as I am looking this over I am getting more and more mad. I am a history teacher. I love Twilight. I COULD HAVE WRITTEN THIS BOOK!!!I could kick myself.The truth of the matter is that I have often thought of historical things when reading these books (and other, non historical in any ways book) because that’s what happens when you are a history teacher. In fact, I have even referred to the series when teaching class, to help explain things (Spanish flue at the end of World War One) to a student (girl of course) who just wasn’t getting it. But, I never thought of writing a book!This person is smart. And rich. Or they will be when every Twi fan worth their salt goes out to purchase this book. From what I’ve seen in the free preview they offer on amazon the book covers the basics. I assume the book used the Twilight characters to explain history in a way that is interesting? Which is an awesome idea and a great way to relate history to your students. Kids love learning things that are important to them and that they can connect with things they already know about. My favorite chapter title is: “Chapter 6: Jasper Hale, the Oldest Living Confederate Veteran.” I would also love the check out chapter 11, which is about the Renaissance and the Volturi (Were the Volturi typical Renaissance rulers?). I would be very interested to see how accurate the history is in this book and how much of the Twilight characters we would actually get to read about.Maybe they will give me a free copy to review on my blog here? (cough. cough.) What do you guys think? A worthwhile book to check out? Has anyone read this book?
A friend at work said to me today that she is buying this book on amazon:
