I knew something was up when the note had such poor spelling, and the entire scene reminded of the old TV show F-Troop. (Before your time, I think)


Ah, the simple play of kids!

I knew something was afoot from the names you chose for your soldiers - I was thinking it was going to be Biblical, except I couldn't think of a William in the New Testament. :) What an original, creative idea! I enjoyed every minute.

Such fun! I was thrown at first, but caught on when more characters with only first names were introduced. Unique take on this topic, so it's a winner in my book!
Very fun read. I didn't suspect the what was happening until William got captured. I enjoyed this.

Very cute. Reads true. Children at play are just a joy to watch. Sometimes people miss this simple pleasure because of busy lives. I took this entry as a reminder to sometimes take the time to watch them.
This was a delight to read. This is one of my favorite genres and I devour YA and tween stories as readily as suspense and mystery. You had a combination of my two favorite genres here. Very enjoyable read!
Great story...I had to read it a second time to check out all your foreshadowing. I really enjoyed "watching" the kids at play.
Definitely an LOL and "I" definitely remember F Troop! This would have fit the show perfectly. This was refreshing in cauzing the reader to reminisce about childhood war games and the like. Enjoyed the unique approach.

Your hints were so subtle, but I did catch on before the cover was blown. That made it even more fun. Great job!

Oh, so good! I have to admit - I didn't know what was going on until the very end. I assumed that the Captain was just poorly educated. As a mom of 4 fort-playing, military-wanna-be sons, I thoroughly enjoyed this! Great writing!

Great job, Leah. This unfolded at just the right pace. Although I anticipated a barrage of pine cones to pelt the girl. Congratulations on your EC!
Congratulations on your EC! Way to go :)

When Capt. James was called Jimmy I thought this must be kids at play. Very real, lots of fun and you truly entertained me. So glad that this was recognized for the talented content.
