I had to read this book for school. At first I really didn't like it. I felt like the book was 'scatter-brained'. like it went from one topic to the next to quickly. When I got about half way through I started enjoying the book more. And now I see the author made it like that to get the story going, though I do think that he could have done it better.
The book it about a boy named Jeff who is fighting in the Civil War. Some where in the story he's given a mission to get information on the enemy and ends up having to fight for the enemy in order to not be caught.
I think it was a pretty interesting book and I would recommend it. I feel it's good for learning what the war was like, and how the soldiers had to live - on both sides of the war.
