July 21, 2014 - 11:32amWe love a good round of Never Have I Ever as much as the next person — after all, learning a person's secrets is always fun. But when you play with a group of feisty historical heroines with wild tales to tell, the game gets even better. Which heroine has or hasn't turned down a proposal? Has Gillian really dressed in men's clothing? Let's find out:Princess Dagmar from The Truth About Leo by Katie MacAlister NEVER HAVE I EVER … stolen a boiled pig's head. TRUEOr for that matter, an unboiled pig's head. Stealing, I've always believed, is in the mind of the beholder, or at least the intention is.
