Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong (Paperback)

This was a great book for me as a teenager since I enjoyed history, and it was the first book that really blew my mind- my textbooks WEREN'T 100% accurate, the fact that was possible just blew me away, and since then I've always been sure to check the sources and learn more about everything.

So yeah, if she likes history, I'd recommend this book- it's a bit wordy though, and I'd only subject it to someone who ENJOYED the subject. But it does give one pause.

If not that- just get her some Terry Pratchett. That's the good stuff and everyone enjoys it.
