Behind Enemy Lines – By Lynelle Mason
A novel for readers ages 10 and up, this is a historically accurate story of how the Civil War came to Chattanooga, Tennessee, and North Georgia. The story is told from the point of view of a 12-year-old boy named Bobby who is on a journey to reunite with his father, who is serving in the Confederate Army. Though fiction, many of the events and individuals in the book were real and seen through Bobby’s eyes.
Behind Enemy Lines causes you to feel the emotions of the characters and to put yourself in their situation. It is truly a page-turner full of laughter, good friends, family, hard times and adventure. Mason's compelling and highly readable book is perfect for upper elementary and middle school students who are learning about the Civil War.
