Publisher's Summary

Working as a Wench - i.e. waitress - at a cheesy medieval-themed restaurant in the Chicago suburbs, Kit Sweetly dreams of being a Knight like her brother. She has the moves, is capable on a horse, and desperately needs the raise that comes with knighthood so she can help her mom pay the mortgage and hold a spot at her dream college. 

Company policy allows only guys to be Knights. So when Kit takes her brother’s place, clobbers the Green Knight, and reveals her identity at the end of the show, she rockets into internet fame and a whole lot of trouble with the management. But this Girl Knight won’t go down without a fight. 

As other Wenches and cast members join her quest, a protest forms. In a joust before Castle executives, they’ll prove that gender restrictions should stay medieval - if they don’t get fired first.

Solid teen romance/equal rights story

Solid teen romance/equal rights story, with a medieval twist.

The setting: a medieval-themed family restaurant. The hero: a heroine, waitress/serving wench Kit. The plot: with a wastrel vanished father leaving Kit, her brother and mum with little to live on, Kit and Chris help out with their wages - Chris earning significantly more as a knight, fighting in staged battles that Kit dreams of joining. The kicker?: she's a girl, so of course she can't be a knight.

The scene is thus set for some modern-day equal rights fighting, some family drama, and with a best friend who's also an employee at this same medieval restaurant, a potential spark of a love story.

This was a fairly typically structured YA story, with a sweet/sassy lead who's struggling to realise her academic dreams, keep (and even better) her job, not lose her best friend over a silly crush, and spearhead a snowballing feminist campaign. I liked Kit, I cared more about the subplot of her knightly ambitions than her relationship with her best friend, though her family situation does make you care how things are going to turn out for them all.

A good time-passer for me, though I'm clearly not the target audience (probably also why the teen romance didn't really hit a nerve with me). Liked the medieval theme.

The Audible narrator did a great job bringing Kit's voice to life, nice and clear, a strong young woman which transferred fairly well when having to voice the male characters.

For ages 12 and above. A few themes/scenes involving discussion of drug taking, poverty. No sexual/swearing content.
