This book is a graphic novel, which means comic book style.  It is well written and interesting but was definitely not my favorite book from this year's list.  It takes place during the Revolutionary War and students will learn many important facts about this time period from this book.  It does have a little bit of fantasy mixed in with the history however.  For more information about this book, check out the web resources below:
