Product Details


Wiechman delivers a realistic portrayal of the gritty details of prison camp conditions as Paul witnesses many soldiers succumb to infected wounds, disease, and malnutrition. . . . The book has strong merit as accurate historical fiction.’ —Publishers Weekly

The rich language and artful imagery will stay with readers long after finishing the last page. . . . This joins other great middle grade novels about the Civil War. . . . A truly excellent first purchase for all fans of historical fiction who enjoy a hint of romance.’ —School Library Journal

* ‘Wiechman’s abundant research is unobtrusively folded into the tale. An excellent author’s note provides further information about the times. Though the horrors of Andersonville and various Civil War-era events such as the Battle of Atlanta, Lincoln’s assassination and the explosion of the steamboat Sultana provide wartime context, it’s the secrets woven into the well-paced tale that will pull readers eagerly to the tearful conclusion. A superb Civil War tale of friendship, loyalty and what it means to be a man.’ —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
