     Brothers Of War is a book by J. Marshall Martin about two brothers who get captured by the rebel army.  They were taken from their home and were put in the Andersonville Confederate Army.  The two brothers believe that their missing father was in the same prison as they were.
     When I first saw the title of this book it caught my eye because I really enjoy reading books about war.  I also enjoy reading books about history.  The picture of the front cover of the book is black and white and it looks like it is from a long time ago. 
     I have never read or heard of this book but I have read ones like this.  The Diary Of Ann Frank and I am currently reading Clara’s War.


     To Kill A Mockingbird is book that is full of intelligence, courage and rascism.  This book is from a girl named Scout in the 1930’s point of veiw.  Her father is an intelligent lawyer who is defending a black man who is accused of raping a white girl. 
     Highschools all over North America are banning this book because of the content of it.  Complaints are mostly from the parents of the students and the most recent is one in Toronto.
     This book in my opinon is not encouraging us students to be racist but it teaches us about racism.  Situations like this did happen back then.  We can’t change history but we can learn from it and make ourselves better people.  There is racist charaters but there is also very inspiring characters too like Atticus Finch Scouts father.  He stands up for what is right and inspires readers like myself.
