it was amazing
Read from May 16 to June 05, 2011

I think the book was really good. It got straight to the point. It wasn't a drag. Adam was a good boy who turned into a man after his father's death. I like the fact that he took care of his family after the fact that his dad died. I thought he was going to kill himself after seeing his father die in front of him but, the author fooled me. This book also helped me out with my american government class because of the time setting that it was in. I suggest people to read this book because its good and it teaches you something.
