I like the book because you learn some interesting facts about the Alamo War. I like it when her aunt has a baby and his name is George Washington. My favorite part in the book is when Lucinda has to care for her brother and is strong for the family when they find some bad news. When I read the book I felt sorry and I couldn't imagine having to be like that, it was a crying over book that I loved. I don't cry, but feel really sorry for all the characters in the story. This book reminds me of me because when someone in my family passes away I am strong for my family. I take care of my brothers and my cousins.
I recommend this book for ages 8-18 because it has a lot of learning information about the war at the Alamo and everyone will enjoy it. The most interesting part about my book is how the author writes everything down so the reader can go on an adventure to the past.
