An illiterate peasant in medieval France, Jehanne—known to us now as Joan of Arc—was never quite at home among her siblings and peers. One day, Jehanne hears the voice of God call to her, telling her she is destined to free her nation from English rule. With incredible courage, Jehanne runs away from home, dresses in men's clothes, and convinces an army that she will lead France to victory. In this extraordinary verse novel for young adult readers, Stephanie Hemphill imagines how an ordinary girl became a great leader, a fearless warrior, and a saint who has inspired generations.
