The book The Bronze Bow is a fast-paced novel set In Israel when Rome had total control over everybody. The book is about the main character, Daniel’s, story during this period. Daniel is a Jew that wants to rebel against Rome and spits at every roman he sees, like when he spat at a roman soldier because the soldier made him get water for him. Otherwise he is very well behaved and is always only slightly grumpy about the Roman control. The Bronze Bow immerses you into the life of Daniel, and it is very easy to imagine that you’re there. It was written during the September of 1997 and won the 1997 Newberry Award for Children’s Literature for it. I very much recommend this book for its amount of accurate information to Aden, Mom, and Dad.
