Crossing to Paradise by Kevin Crossley-Holland

Gatty has never been far from her rural English home during the Medievel period but now she finds herself a pilgrim on her way to Jerusalem with an assorted cast of characters. It isn't an easy journey. Members of her group are injured, one dies and she gets separated. It is a good historical fiction story about a girl who grows and finds hope. I liked this story but I don't see it having a broad teen appeal. It is good not great. I vote nay.
