it was amazing

I really enjoyed this book. I wouldn't go out of my way to read a book about Washington, but for the fact that I enjoy William Martin's books so much. Citizen Washington didn't disapoint at all. I had read a book not too long ago about the Founding Fathers, so I was somewhat familiar with Washington's bearing and people's perceptions of him...that he didn't say a lot, listened much....and it was all about his reputation, and honor. The book is well written with characters that you care about. I was really quite bereft at the end with Jacob and Nelly sitting together...I really think they should assign books like this in high school. While it is historical fiction, the battles are gripping, and I think it would have even girls more interested in history put to them in a story with relationships and warmth added.
