Five top historical YA novels about wayward women

At the BN Teen Blog Nicole Hill tagged five top historical YA novels about adventurous and independent-minded women, including:
A Madness So Discreet, by Mindy McGinnis

Things are going even worse for Grace in McGinnis’s haunting tale of false imprisonment and the power of secrets. Grace is far from insane, but her father packs her away to an asylum to hide a traumatic family history and the child in her belly. Grace is sane, but she’s surrounded by madness. Then, at her lowest moment, she’s plucked from this hell by a young doctor, who sees a clever young woman perfect to serve as his assistant at crime scenes. But Grace may be entering a world even more mad than the one she left.
