Top critical review
Too graphic and violent
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on October 4, 2022
This novel starts with an 11 year old running through trees being chased by a British soldier with a bayonet. He is thinking about his friend he just saw get shot through the heart. I was immediately turned off. I really hate this. Further along, the kid talks about how some people got their heads blown off by cannons. This is disturbing and not appropriate for kids 8 to 10. It would give me nightmares and I know some children who would have the same negative reaction. Inappropriate for the age group!
