In fifth grade, I absolutely loved this story! The Newbery Honor is about a young boy name Tim Meeker whose brother Sam enlists in the new American Revolutionary Army. What Tim didn‘t realize was that his brother and father would end up rooting for opposing teams, Tim is torn between who to support. This HF novel is perfect for LC for students in 5th-7th grade. #ucflae3414su19

DrSpalding Excellent resource for a wonderful book to include well teaching fifth grade social studies. The American revolution is a big unit! This could be a literature circle option while learning about this very famous war. 4mo

A short #audiobook while I'm waiting for the last Bloody Jack novel to become available via OverDrive!

Already interested in what happens to the characters, so we'll see how the Revolutionary War treats them.

Mehso-so

Meh. A little lackluster, this one, I thought. I couldn't quite get interested in the characters or what happened to them, and it seemed fairly vanilla up until the very end, when it suddenly got super-serious and dark. Yes, I know I should have seen the death of the brother coming (and I did - no, really), but I assumed it would be described in the same vanilla way as everything else had been up to that point. So the ending seemed disjointed.
