Can I See Your I.D.?

Can I See Your I.D.?
By Chris Barton
Dial Books for Young Readers, 2011. 121 pgs. Young Adult Nonfiction

Chris Barton shares ten stories of people who adopted false identifies for various reasons. There are stories of a girl pretending to be a boy in order to fight in the Civil War, a high school dropout who pretended to be a Navy surgeon, a white supremacist who tried to pass himself off as a Cherokee storyteller, and more.

This is an interesting collection of stories, ranging from silly to serious, told in the second person, as if you, the reader, are the imposter. Some stories were more intriguing than others, but all in all, it's a fun read.
