it was amazing

After reading this book the only wonder isn't that it was a National Book Award Finalist, but that it didn't win the award. This book was an intriguing piece of historical fiction that is sure to get any young adult reader interested in the abolitionist movement and/or the revolutionary war. Laurie Halse Anderson has a wonderful way of weaving a consuming story that makes the reader wonder how anyone could support the atrocities of war or slavery. This an excellent read for young adult readers interested in fiction, war stories, coming of age stories, history, slavery, or that just appreciate a good read.
