Which Character do I Identify myself as
Would I change the ending of the book
I identy myself with Tim because if i had a brother I wouldn't want him walking away to the army specially stealing the families gun. I would like a brother that would stay home and help. But if he did I would be mad and just hope he doesn't die.
No I wouldn't change the end of the book. I thought it was a good way to end the book after a good story.

I would recommend this book because it was very good. It got exciting and when Sam dies it was sad. I would recommend it to people you like the revolution and people who like sad stories.
