Forge

by Laurie Halse Anderson
£6.99   paperback  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2011)

Forge by Laurie Halse Anderson Would you risk everything to be free?
 
A sensational sequel to the Carnegie Medal shortlisted Chains with a shift in emphasis from Isabel to Curzon in a tale about runaway slaves trying to forge their own paths in a world of obstacles.
 
Isabel and Curzon have escaped New York and are facing a life on the run. Isabel wants to find her sister, and Curzon can’t see how to help her. When they find themselves separated, their journeys become harder and Curzon joins the American army, fighting for independence against the British.
 
Neither has the success they wanted and soon they are reunited in terrible circumstances, enslaved once more. As the army prepares for its biggest battle yet, Curzon too prepares for the hardest challenge he has ever faced – getting both himself and Isabel out of Valley Forge and freeing them. For good.
 
A brilliant and gripping story in which two wonderful characters fill the reader’s mind and heart with epic adventures and extraordinary courage. This historical novel not only brings to life a crucial period in American history but also establishes two of literature’s most appealing young lovers.
