This could have been so much more but wasn't. I didn't get into the story or care for any of the characters because of the writing style, 'tell don't show'. The style made the topic tedious. It is probably interesting, though, for those who are interested in AL and this time in the American history.
The twist at the end, which of course is quite obvious if you think about it, could have been made into a much more thrilling story without the constraints of AL's real life.
