Description



About the Book



Now in paperback--the "School Library Journal" Best Book of the Year that explores what might have happened if the rebellion of the American colonies against British rule was crushed in 1776.



Book Synopsis



In 1776, the rebellion of the American colonies against British rule was crushed. Now, in 1777-the year of the hangman-George Washington is awaiting execution, Benjamin Franklin's banned rebel newspaper, Liberty Tree, has gone underground, and young ne'er-do-well Creighton Brown, a fifteen-year-old Brit, has just arrived in the colonies. Having been shipped off against his will, with nothing but a distance for English authorities, Creighton befriends Franklin, and lands a job with his print shop. But the English general expects the spoiled yet loyal Creighton to spy on Franklin. As battles unfold and falsehoods are exposed, Creighton must decide where his loyalties lie...a choice that could determine the fate of a nation.



Review Quotes




"Packed with action, convincing historical speculation, and compelling portrayals of real-life and fictional characters, this [is] a page-turner." -School Library Journal
