Wow! What a fantastic book. It's about two young boys during the Civil War. I won't give too much away here, I'll just say it's a great read. It's a "children's" book but deals with some pretty heavy stuff so it's not for the little ones. I read it to my 6, 8, 11 and 13 yo but the 6yo was not very interested and kind of did her own thing. AND being that I read it last week, said 6yo was 5... sniff sniff. Anyways, it's a true story told down through a family generation after generation to the author who is writing the book. It's fantastic.
