I love reading about Masada. I only wish this author would write an adult length tale as this is just for children (upper elementary I would estimate although it touches on more mature themes but not in detail). Perhaps it is because I have been to Masada and many of the locations mentioned, but I
Show Morecould feel and knew every location and I could visualize everything the author wrote. I just wish it was an adult length tale, although children might not really be mature enough to know how the Jews really died there.
