About the Book:
When Revolutionary War Patriot Lamberton Clark is shot by British soldiers while on a mission for the Continental Army, he has only two hopes of getting the secret message he’s carrying to General George Washington: his 14-year-old twin boys John and Ambrose. Upon discovering that their father is a spy in the Culper Spy Ring, the boys accept their mission without a clue about what they may be up against. They set off from Connecticut to New Jersey to find General Washington, but the road to the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army is full of obstacles; including the man who shot their father who is hot on their trail.
OK, I admit it, I love children's middle grade and chapter books. I think it is because they often are more innocent. I loved this story, a great way to help kids fall in love with history. The authors kept the story moving fast and there was no chance to be bored. I enjoyed the difference between the twins. I had to laugh at some of the scenes, especially the rivalry scenes. A great story for all ages, even for us moms. 5 stars from this reviewer. This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.
