An Excellent Segue For Teens Who Have Outgrown "Liberty's Kids."

 

 

Saving Washington, by Chris Formant, is an excellent segue for teens who have outgrown “Liberty’s Kids” and desire to learn more about the Revolutionary War––particularly the little-known battle of Brooklyn. Formant describes the sights, sounds, and smells of Baltimore, and the battlefield and swamps of Brooklyn with poise, and his dialog is superb! Military tactics, colonial training, and strategy played a vital role in the war, and all three were critical in the battle of Brooklyn. Raising the social issues of the time, Formant reminds readers that some ideas have always been contentious.  Saving Washington will compliment the collections of readers who’ve enjoyed Johnny Tremain, or My Brother Sam is Dead.
