REVIEW È eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ó Laurie Halse Anderson

Couple the Locktons who have no sympathy for the American Revolution and even less for Ruth and Isabel When Isabel meets Curzon a slave with ties to the Patriots he encourages her to spy on her owners who know details of British plans for invasion She is reluctant at first but when the un. Halfway through Wow this is a painful book in all the best ways I m wondering whether the story is going to manage to pull off some hope by the end and if so how it s going to do so without cheating So far a powerful book and one that s hard to put downAfter finishing A disconcerting look at New York City during the Revolutionary War from the point of view of Isabel a black girl living there hearing talk of freedom and being reminded over and over again by both sides that the talk isn t about freedom for her I loved this book the vivid prose that made me feel like I really was in New York in 1776 And I was struck by not the people who were cruel to Isabel though the cruelty was pretty horrible but by the many people who were sympathetic to Isabel but either wouldn t or believed they couldn t do anything about it Because much as I d like to believe otherwise I fear that s where most of us would be maybe even are wincing at the injustice we see giving a smile and a few sympathetic words coming home and blogging about it to our friends who assure us it wasn t our fault and there was nothing we could really do and then pushing the uneasiness into the back of our minds and going on with our lives An uncomfortable thought that as it should be

    My discovery of Laurie Halse Anderson’s Chains came at the best possible time I had recently read and reviewed Steve Sheinkin’s King George What Was His Problem? a book that looks at the stories behind the American Revolution that they don’t teach you in school I enjoyed the title thoroughly but one point had me baffled Why on earth did American slaves fight or aid the Revolution when Britain was anti slavery? It just didn
