Trouble at the Scriptorium is a historical novel for young adults, set in medieval England. Harley is the son of the court jester; he was raised with the graceful and beautiful Lady Margaret, but their difference in class and rank has created a vast gulf between them. This begins to change when they find an illustrated chantbook with a secret code, warning about the malevolent deeds of the new head of the scriptorium. A suspenseful novel of life-or-death intrigue, Trouble at the Scriptorium keeps the reader hooked until the very end! Also highly recommended for YA fiction collections are Joyce Esely's "Oil Field Brats" (9780880925297, $9.99) and Leslie J. Wyatt's "River Rats" (9780898243789, $9.99).
