Beautifully narrated.... Touching and thought provoking story for adults as well as children. American History teachers should incorporate this into their curriculum.

Where's the action?

I was exited at the beginning when, well, I won't spoil it, but after that, I soon realized: IT WAS NOTHING BUT CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!!!!!!
Everything was flat and boring, I slept halfway through it. The only reason I finished it was because I was hoping for at least some action, but no, it was just going through the life of the character, and that is why I gave such low rating...😡
