Prolific writer James Lincoln Collier collaborates with his brother, Christopher, a distinguished historian, and the Revolutionary War comes alive in this contemporary classic for young adults. Here is a war with no clear-cut loyalties - dividing families, friends, and towns. Young Tim Meeker watches his 16-year-old brother, Sam, go off to fight with the Patriots while his father remains a reluctant British Loyalist in the Tory town of Redding Ridge, Connecticut.

If you like and Adventure books this is what I would recommend for you this book has action adventure. It gives you a little history lesson as well. I wish though it would tell what happens to Tim's family.but I still give it 5 out of 5 stars because I love the storyline
