The Fighting Ground explores the experiences of a thirteen-year-old boy who decides to involve himself in a Revolutionary War battle. The entire story takes place in the course of twenty-four hours. Instead of naming his chapters, Avi labels each section with the time it takes place. The events happen quickly, and Avi is an expert at making the reader feel what the character feels. The book is enjoyable both as historical fiction and as an adventure.
