A superbly written, completely engaging historical novel. Pair this one with Steve Sheinkin's Notorious Benedict Arnold. ( )

The way the book is structured it is in 3 parts. I liked how this was done because it focused on different aspects of the same story in the different sections. In addition, there are time gaps between the sections, which shows the narrators growth as a person. The words were very authentic to the time period, and a vocabulary list is provided at the back of the book, which is very helpful! There was a good representation of the time period through the setting descriptions, as well as the descriptions of people (British and American), highlighting how not all enemy fighters are evil themselves, and how some of your heroes may not be what they seem. I loved reading it!

Gr 6-9, Set during the American Revolutionary War in British occupied New York City, 12 year old Sophia is recruited to be a spy for the Americans. She is risking everything, including her life, to help her country and to free her brother. She finds out there is an American soldier who seems to be switching sides, potentially fatal for the Americans. Avi's storytelling is captivating, creating a historical fiction novel that keeps you turning the next page. The plot itself is full of intrigue, danger, and bravery. This is definitely a book to put in the hands of a middle grader looking for historical fiction. ( )

This story begins with Sophia in 1776 in New York City, shortly after the British invade the U.S, young Sophia witnesses a hanging and decides she is going to do everything she can to protect her country. She is recruited by a spy and then finds out one of the fellow soldiers maybe thinking about committing treason and switching sides to the enemies. Later the plot thicken's when Sophia realizes she maybe in trouble herself.

This was a really great story about a brave girl on the side of the americans during the revolutionary war. It is a very ggod story, full of suspense and action. She is constantly torn between both sides. I would definately share this book with 6th graders on up. ( )
