"A good option" - "Booklist" on "Brave Like My Brother"

Review of Brave Like My Brother from Booklist (4/16):

  • "age-appropriate storytelling, making this a good choice for reluctant readers"
  • "afterword notes the importance of soldiers' letters as historic documents providing wartime information that would otherwise be missing from political histories, and while these are fiction, they do indeed emulate the realism of a working-class soldier's thoughts and observations as well as accurately portraying what he might encounter during his service"
  • "Nobleman always steers clear of melodrama. A good option"

Thank you!
