The classic story of one family torn apart by the Revolutionary War -- now with special After Words bonus features!

All his life, Tim Meeker has looked up to his brother Sam. Sam's smart and brave -- and is now a part of the American Revolution. Not everyone in town wants to be a part of the rebellion. Most are supporters of the British -- including Tim and Sam's father.
With the war soon raging, Tim know he'll have to make a choice -- between the Revolutionaries and the Redcoats . . . and between his brother and his father.

We are a small school with limited resources - I am trying to increase offerings for students in my classroom library. Historical fiction and non-fiction stories would increase student exposure to different genres - the Revolutionary War is taught heavily in my grade level so this book would be a great addition for students.
