The squires tales are great books to read (even though I have only read some of them.)
It is set in Medieval times when King Arther was around. The one I have read is about a girl whose name is Shara. She comes upon a Knight and a lady.
The knight discovers Shara trying to steal the sword the Knight had gotten for his son. Then the Knight asks what does she what the sword for. She does not tell him how she wants to kill the Knight of the Red Fires.
The Knight asks is it for a good thing and Shara says yes. He then gives the sword to her (with the lady having a storm of Protest; saying not to let a girl have a sword).
Then the Knight gives Shara the sword and starts to teach her how to draw her sword, while the lady sits and watches. After a while the lady decides to get lunch. Shara is hungry so she finishes her lunch and drinks all the water then says that she will get some more water.
When she comes back she hears the Knight and lady talking. She stops and listens.
Then a knight comes and charges the other knight( Sir Kai). Sir Kai does not have a horse so he gets caught and so does the lady. Then Shara finds out from from her hiding place that the lady is actually the Queen of England and King Arther's wife, and that the knight is kidnapping her. Sir Kai is a prisoner too but he is smart and he tells the other Knight where Camalot is. But he actually is telling Shara where the castle is so that she could go and tell King Arther what had happend.
