I love this book. So interesting. You are learning about the Revolutionary War, but in a better way....by reading it.

This is a wonderful book, it is full of excitement and suspence. I thought Ellen was a pretty smart girl and so did her grandfather, but she did not. She kept on getting bullied by the water pump by a mean girl. At the end of the book she stood up to her, and I thought that was great!
