Overview

An exciting historical adventure, co-written by the New York Times bestselling author of the Origami Yoda series!

 Stonewall Hinkleman (yup, that’s his real name) hates participating in historical reenactments with his Civil War-obsessed parents. Who wants to pretend to fight in some old war anyway? But one day, Stonewall finds himself transported back in time to the actual Battle of Bull Run—and he’s not alone! Mr. Dupree, an ardent Confederate from Stonewall’s time, has also traveled back in order to change the outcome of the whole Civil War. Stonewall needs to use all of his knowledge of the battle to stop Dupree and save the course of American history as we know it.

Praise

Praise for Stonewall Hinkleman!
 
“Stonewall’s wry first-person narrative will appeal to readers from the start: if his resentful rant against his parents doesn’t draw laughs, his amusing spin on hallowed family history surely will. . . . This engaging novel offers a fresh approach to Civil War fiction.”—Booklist
 
“Stonewall is a likable character whose attitude changes for the better in the story. . . . A good choice for historical fiction fans.—School Library Journal
 
“Combining imaginary and real people and places is successful and gives readers detailed insight.”—Library Media Connection
