    This compelling classic of a boy's coming of age during the Civil War is based on stories the author's grandfather told her about his own life.

    Story

    I listened to this with my 11 & 13 year old boys on the way to a civil war reinactment and they loved it. Also a lively discussion at book club. Good growing up. Well written, compelling. lots of things to discuss and information not too graphic. All of the boys in our book club loved it. Excellent intro to the civil war and issues on border states.

    Story

    When a 70-year-old woman finds a five-year-old girl abandoned on her doorstep, she is thrust into a sorrowful past that can only be conquered with the help of the girl who opened her memory - the very girl she is trying to save. This first novel, according to author Jacquelyn Mitchard, is one of "exquisite power, honesty, and conviction...quite nearly without flaws."

    I was disappointed in this story. Performance was well done but the story itself was all over the place and disappointing.

    Our teens used this for a book club discussion and the story was well liked and fun. The performance is sometimes hard to understand.

    This was terrible not what I thought at all. Boring and not informative. Just read the book and enjoy it for its own sake.

    Marooned on a tropical island, alone in a world of uncharted possibilities, and devoid of adult supervision or rules, a group of British boys begins to forge a society with its own unique rules and rituals.

    Raisa says: "Great story - bad narration"
    "Chilling Classic Still Timely"
    Overall

    I did this book with 6 16-17 year old boys and it was a huge book for them. So worth it to revisit as an adult. Very timely. Creepy, harsh and gritty. Only down side was lots of sexual references which I had forgotten.
