Hey YAs, it's Independence Day! On this day 236 years ago our forefathers adopted the Declaration of Indepence, a document that announced to England that we intended to be our own country. Here are some teen books I have set in this period in our country's history~
Teenage runaway slaves with superhuman powers, a Hessian giant, the most evil slave owners imaginable, and Benjamin Franklin: this story of the Revolution blends fact and fantasy in an imaginative reinterpretation of a critical time in American history.
Various diaries, letters, and other manuscripts chronicle the experiences of Octavian, a young African American, from birth to age sixteen, as he is brought up as part of a science experiment in the years leading up to and during the Revolutionary War.
After being sold to a cruel couple in New York City, a slave named Isabel spies for the rebels during the Revolutionary War.
OK. Now go enjoy some fireworks :)
