"Anacaona: Golden Flower, Haiti, 1490" by Edwidge Danticat. The Royal Diaries series are a great way to get young girls excited about history. The historical fiction is well researched and geared toward pre-teen girls. The back of every book includes a real history chapter to give the reader more information about the time period and the historical figure featured in the book.
