As the Revolutionary War begins, 13-year-old Isabel wages a battle of her own—for freedom from slavery. In a cruel twist of fate, she and her sister Ruth aren't freed on the death of their owner, as they had been promised. Instead, they become the property of a malicious New York City couple, the Locktons, who have no sympathy for the American Revolution and even less for Ruth and Isabel. When Isabel meets Curzon, a slave with ties to the Patriots, he encourages her to spy on her owners, who know details of British plans for invasion. She is reluctant at first, but when the unthinkable happens to Ruth, Isabel realizes her loyalty is available to the highest bidder…as long as they can provide her with the thing she wants most—her freedom.

From acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson comes this compelling, impeccably researched novel that shows how far one person can go to cast off their chains, both physical and spiritual.
