Release date: October 19, 2010

In this compelling sequel to Chains, a National Book Award Finalist and winner of the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction, acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson shifts perspective from Isabel to Curzon and brings to the page the tale of what it takes for runaway slaves to forge their own paths in a world of obstacles - and in the midst of the American Revolution.

The Patriot Army was shaped and strengthened by the desperate circumstances of the Valley Forge winter. This is where Curzon the boy becomes Curzon the young man. In addition to the hardships of soldiering, he lives with the fear of discovery, for he is an escaped slave passing for free. And then there is Isabel, who is also at Valley Forge - against her will. She and Curzon have to sort out the tangled threads of their friendship while figuring out what stands between the two of them and true freedom.
 
If you haven't read Chains you must do so.....Historical Fiction at its best!!!

  1. Oh wow where did you find the cover for Forge? Believe it or not I went to Anderson's website today to see if it was up yet because I am definitely waiting for this one too. Loved Chains and am placing this on our area wide book battle list next year.

    Good pick!

  9. I haven't read anything by Anderson yet. Everytime I think of picking up one of her books in the library, it looks like it would be depressing. This one sounds like it would be better!
