My fourth grade teacher first read this book to me and back then I couldn't comprehend the struggle and the irony associated with this time and the war. This book takes place during the Civil War and it involves a family who is divided. Some family members are fighting for the South and some family members are fighting for the North.
This book will make eveyone young and old think.
This is a really good historical novel about boy durring the American Civil War. This comming of age novel was givin to me when I was in Middle School and I think I read it twice in one month.
