This book had great potential. A wonderful premise, to write a novella using historical facts with fictional characters. UNFORTUNATELY, the authors must have convinced themselves that the only way to captivate a pre-teen/teenager is to use vulgarity and profanity. It was belittling to the reader and completely unnecessary. The only (slightly) redeeming quality was the few fact-filled pages sandwiched between some of the chapters. Those pages were interesting and well done.
