I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this one. To me the characters felt very flat more like stock characterizations rather than real individuals that I could relate to. Granted it is a short book, but I do not think kids will get what really was going on without a teacher to fill in the historical context. I will be interested to see what the kids in the library think.
