Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed children's author Avi's many accolades include a Newbery Medal and Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. Inspired by true stories from the American Revolution, Sophia's War begins in 1776, when British troops arrive on the doorstep of 12-year-old Sophia Calderwood's home in New York. After the disappearance and possible capture of her brother - and the execution of Nathan Hale - Sophia has vowed to do all she can to help the cause for independence. But the war will test her in ways she never imagined.

Perfect for middle school

I had my middle school classes read this book during our revolution unit and they loved it. It's 95% true so they loved picking out the true story an doing more research. Way better than traditional history learning!

The narrator needs work

A decent story, though the plot does drag. However, the narrator used a fake British accent for the main character, which was so grating that it detracted from the story.
