The first in the bestselling Seeds of America Trilogy, this National Book Award Finalist and Scott O’Dell Award winner is full of history, heart and suspense. Laurie Halse Anderson tells the gripping story of a young girl struggling to find both herself and her freedom.
Thirteen-year-old Isabel is so close to finally receiving her freedom from slavery at the beginning of the Revolutionary War. Yet tragically, when her owner dies, her and her sister Ruth aren’t given their freedom, but the exact opposite. These two young girls are now at the mercy of the Locktons, a New York couple who has even less regard for them or the American Revolution. Isabel feels trapped, until she meets Curzon, a slave aligned with the Patriots. Curzon encourages her to spy on the Locktons with the hope that they will reveal details of the planned British invasion. Isabel is scared, but events with Ruth galvanize her into taking her chance at freedom into her own hands.
