We will be reading "The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg," by Rodman Philbrick.
Homer is a 12-year-old orphan from Pine Swamp, Maine whose older brother, Harold, has been sold into the Union Army. Homer sets out to find him and has to outwit and outrun a collection of thieves, spies and other unsavory characters on the way. His adventurous search leads him to the Battle of Gettysburg...will he find his brother or will it be too late?
