I believe I purchased this book on a whim and am pleased I did! The actions of two girls, both in danger, separated by 150years are followed.
The element I like the most is that through discovering the story of Samantha 150 years ago, Annie learns to deal with her current situation. I personally found Samantha's story far more compelling, and applaud her bravery. Having said that, Annie has two stories - one dealing with the current situation she is in and the other searching for Samantha's story.
This book has sparked an interest in the Revolution and I look forward to reading more on the topic - any recommendations?
Anyway, I recommend this book and I read it one sitting - I was totally engrossed.
