Great addition to the library
I am not a non-fiction reader, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I had meant to just skim through it but I became absorbed in the story. This book is easily accessible to middle school readers, it tells the good and the bad equally and without judgement. A great addition to the library....
