Patriots, Redcoats, and Spies Review


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." (Goodreads)

My Review

I do love this time period so I am always excited to see publishers and authors create a story that is more kid friendly. I think that a lot of times kids or young adults see history as boring because all they have read is a textbook. Books like this bring history alive and they are what made me interested in history when I was younger.
I really enjoyed this book! I think the historical facts were good and it gave good perspective on what it was like to be a Patriot. The twin boys must get a letter to George Washington but be very careful along their way. This story is about their journey and adventures.

Younger folks will enjoy, boy and girls both. Ages 8-12.

Five stars.
