If an entire nation could seek its freedom, why not a girl?

As the Revolutionary War begins, thirteen-year-old Isabel wages her own fight...for freedom. Promised freedom upon the death of their owner, she and her sister, Ruth, in a cruel twist of fate become the property of a malicious New York City 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 unthinkable happens to Ruth, Isabel realizes her loyalty is available to the bidder who can provide her with freedom.

From acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson comes this compelling, impeccably researched novel that shows the lengths we can go to cast off our chains, both physical and spiritual.

  • A True Work Of Art

    By Silentkiller89
    I could not put this book down after turning that first page, the story is written beautifully and the storyline and charecters are well developed. I practically backflipped out of my chair after seeing there was a second book. I recommend this to anyone who wants to read a trully engaging story
  • I'm so impressed

    By The:)~
    I'm so Impressed with this book; I had to purchase it for my U.S. History class, and I didn't expect myself to enjoy it so much. This book was truly amazing; it puts us in perspective of Isabel and her struggles. Like many slaves during this time era, she was mistreated by her owner. Laurie Halse Anderson did such a great job! I can't wait to read Forge!

    By @Magcon.Boys.o3o
    Very sad. Get ready to cry a whole bunch. An amazing book. Just was to short. You will want there to be a second book at the end.
