Outstanding book!!

My son and I read this book together and we could not put it down! It is funny, suspenseful and has historical relevance. It does show the realism of war (takes place during the civil war) which my son and I discussed as we were reading it. I loved that actually.
We both highly, highly recommend this book. It's an exciting, page-turning story while giving a little history lesson at the same time! What more could a parent want!!
