A super cute story of two teens who travel back into civil war days to experience real living. CJ who complains that her life at home is bad because she had to take of the house while her mom works, quickly sees what life is like to scavenge for food to eat and make due with little when the armies clean out the homes in the south. Jacob thinks he wants to leave his sleepy home of Broken Branch by joining the army, but after he is forced to partake in fighting with the south he decides his decision may not fit him.
The Unexpected Performance is an Unexpected fun story. I latched on to it because I like time travel stories. But this one took me to Civil War which I wasn't sure I would like but I did. In fact, I believe the main shortcoming of this story is that it's too short. I would have liked the story to go deeper into the characters dealing with the situation of the Civil War landscape and all it's sweeping trials and tribulations....perhaps even following the 20th Century male character through the war-torn Civil War era... and then having the main female lead have to try to find him... sort of like 'Cold Mountian'. Still, I liked it for the short story that it is. I thought it is also clever how they are modern day actors having to apply their skills to survive in the 18th century.
