The Smile

Author: Donna Jo Napoli

Genre: Life

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8

Type: Historical fiction

Number of pages: 257

Time period: 1400s

My overall opinion: Tolerably interesting. First person, present tense, but not annoying like some books like that are. It was an interesting peek into life in Leonardo da Vinci’s time. There was a little too much detail a few times, but I’d say it’s okay for about 16+. And I enjoyed the author’s note about what was fiction and what was not! Overall, an okay book, but not one that I loved.
