Imagine having so much money that you couldnít spend it all in one lifetime. Then imagine ruling over a land so vast that it was morning in one part, and while it was still night in another. If you were part of the Romanov family, that is what you would have done. However, you would also be brutally murdered one night along with the rest of your family. The Romanovs were a royal Russian family who lived in a fairy tale world. An evil monk named Rasputin made sure that the family didnít know that their people were very angry and were starving. The Romanovs didnít know how their people had to live, but the people knew how the Romanovs lived. The story is true and one you will not forget. This is an easy way to learn a bit of Russian history.    (Booktalk by Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Award Committee)
