Catherine, Called Birdy by Karen Cushman

In the year 1290, Catherine begins a journal recording her life and thoughts. She counts fleas, she dodges suitors, she hides from her governess, and so much more.

I really, really liked Catherine, Called Birdy. Catherine is sometimes sarcastic and tells it like it is. Being written in journal form made me feel like I was talking to her and learning about her life. I highly recommend this book for middle grade kids.
