I picked this up at the library for my Hamilton-obsessed son, but after he read it, he insisted that I read it, too. It is, of course, a short graphic novel aimed at middle grade readers, so things are abbreviated and simplified, but it is so energetic! and fun! And certainly filled out my rather limited knowledge on someone who was certainly a major player in the American Revolution.

Enjoyable. I think a lot of kids would like it, especially those obsessed with Hamilton. As for me, it finally provided that little push to motivate me to get a copy of Lafayette in the Somewhat United States that I'd been eyeing forever. ( )

"Ev'ryone give it up for America's favorite fighting Frenchman!"

Anyone who loves the Hamilton musical will probably get a kick out of this biography of one of its most charismatic characters. Lafayette! is another super entry in Nathan Hale's truly awesome history series.

Bonus: There's a short history of Benedict Arnold's betrayal included. ( )
