Connolly, Kara

No Good Deed

(3) YA While visiting Nottingham for an archery competition, contemporary teen Ellie mysteriously stumbles into medieval England. Misunderstood and pursued by the sheriff's men, Ellie disguises herself as a boy and inadvertently initiates the legend of Robin Hood. Connolly's female-centered reimagining is entertaining; a clever concluding twist also enables a satisfying resolution to Ellie's familial and romantic troubles.
