    118 pages. Another excellent adventure back int time. Great details and character development. Great conflicts and plot in this one. Both boys and girls will enjoy reading this one. The storyline kept me engaged up until the very last page. It has a nice, satisfying ending. There are extra historical notes that are very interesting and may spark some fun research on the side. I like how the author discovered a little-known battle and educated her readers. Very interesting. Highly recommended fo 118 pages. Another excellent adventure back int time.

    I have always enjoyed this series and this book was a nice addition to the collection. I appreciate the story she chose to tell because it's a lesser known battle of the war and it's always good to add those stories to kids' knowledge of a historical time period. It wasn't my favorite, mainly because I didn't emotionally connect with the main character and his story as I have with others. I'm sure students will enjoy it and it will be a good addition to elementary classrooms studying American hi I have always enjoyed this series and this book was a nice addition to the collection.

    I liked these this character has a clear growth arc. Maybe this rating is falsely increased because I've been perusing a lot of "reluctant reader" children's lit right now, and this is how you do that stuff correctly. You don't get reluctant readers reading with potty humor and disrespectful characters. You get them reading with magical, exciting, immersive storylines. So, bravo, Lauren Tarshis.

    I thought this book was great. It is about a boy that is named Nathanial Fox that is put into war against the Great Britain. He was very scared of fighting. I would to if I was 11 years old and had to fight grown men. In this book it shows you the weapons that they used, like a bayonet, or a musket, and it was really interesting. There was a lot of detail in it and that what made it so great. I recomend this book to people who want to know more about the war and anyone who wants to read it.

    Genre: Historical FictionGrade Level: 4-6Unique: This book places the reader in a historical place while having a very relatable main character. I think it's interesting how Nathaniel (main character) gets stuck in the war and has a conflict that is teaching students about history.

    Somewhat gorier than previous ones, so maybe not great for a tender third grader but perfect for older grades.

    Please tell me I'm not the only approaching-middle-aged woman who preorders these books for herself and waits on pins and needles for them to arrive.

    I loved the plot line of this book. For such a vast topic she did a great job of giving readers a strong overview of the beginning stages of the war. It was definitely one of my favorites from this series. If your child hasn't read any I survived books I would be shocked, but this would be a great starter for them. Wonderful for grades 3-5. I promised my students I would read this over the weekend so they could check it out during the week👍🏻. #40bookchallenge #historicalfiction #laurentarshis
