Geef me de ruimte! review

This book starts off extremely similar to Thea Beckman’s novel ‘Hasse Simonsdochter’, as a young girl escapes from her parents and chooses to decide for herself what to do with her life. This book for young adults is decent, alright — but suffers a fatal flaw in that it doesn’t really feel like a full story, but rather a collection of small adventures. And as a result (or cause) of that, the characters barely develop and feel flat. On the upside, Beckman’s books are a fantastic way to relive history. Wikipedia does not feel, but through this book you’ll be ‘inside’ the Battle of Poitiers.
