I think the book was awesome but, some parts made it disturbing. Right away, the book started with Thomas getting shot by an enraged British soldier. I liked the book because of all of the action and sad moments it took me through. All throughout the book I was anxious about if the main character would survive or not. The book was unique because the series that itís in shows tragedies throughout American History. The author makes it more action packed. I think that is pretty cool. The main character, Thomas changed from the beginning of the book to the end. In the beginning, he was care free living with his sister, Birdie. But, towards the end he was scared and cautious. He did not want to get caught by British soldiers.
I think kids ages 9-13 would like this book because its action packed and has some exciting moments. I think people that donít have a weak stomach should read this book because of some of the disturbing moments in the book. In the end, there is a surprise ending that would interest the reader because you knowÖ itís a surprise!
