⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This book was beautifully written. I loved reading and purposely took my time to savor it slowly. Looking forward to reading the next book of the series.
As always, the author's writing is lovely. Isabel was an easy character to connect to and feel for.
The story itself was interesting and well paced. For the most part, the characters are also well rounded. I was not expecting this to end on a cliffhanger! The only things I didn't like is the quotes at the beginning of chapters. While I assume they were there to give more fact & history to the book, they at times felt a little jarring to read.
This is book #4 in the junior/middle reading Olympics Booklist. This is a book about 11 year old Isabel and her younger sister who are fighting for freedom during the Revolutionary War. It takes place in New York in 1776. It is a part of a series and the title of the other books are Forge and Ashes. I‘m looking forward to reading this one myself!
Really happy to see that my son's 5th grade class is reading this. Two years ago my oldest son read My Brother Sam is Dead in the same grade. This year the 5th graders read that again, but now the students are following that book with a completely different perspective of early America.
This Historical Fiction is a first book within a trilogy by Laurie Halse Anderson. This book shares the accounts of young Isabel and her little sister Ruth fighting for their freedom as slaves after their mother passed away. A National Book Award Finalist & Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction #UCFWaltersLit
This incredible HF novel that won the Scott O'Dell Award the same year it was released and was a National Book Finalist, is the first of the 'Seeds of America' series written by Laurie Halse Anderson, and is an amazing novel to use for LC, IR and AS. This novel is about what 13-year-old Isabel goes through to finally be freed from slavery, just as the Revolutionary War began.
Award winning book, but we just can't make it through the narration. The narrator talks in a soft whispery voice, so we have to turn the sound way up. And she sounds congested? The story didn't grab us after an hour, so we're giving up. I'd suggest the written version, if you are interested.
