Well, a kid named Moose Flanagan had that happen to him. Genre The genre of this book is historical fiction because it was based on a real place, but included fake people.

The Scale I think it was a 3 because it wasn’t to easy and it wasn’t to hard. What Attracted Me To The Book It attracted me to the book because I have read other books by Gennifer Choldenko.
