This story is set during the civil war period.It shows us the perspective of the young boy chris .The story starts with him hating the Yankees and then change in his perspective.And the end, he realizes that they are not very bad people. It has few twists and is a quick and light read. ( )

Follows a young boy in Tennessee through 2-3 days during the Civil War, and during his own crisis of conviction. Nicely written; this one would be an excellent middle grade read under the 'conflicts are not all black-and-white' type umbrella. ( )
