Chainsby Laurie Halse Anderson

The American Revolution comes to vivid life in Chains, the story of one young girl’s quest for freedom. Laurie Halse Anderson’s critically acclaimed, National Book Award nominee Chains is technically a middle-grade novel and as such, it’s on the young side for Riveted, but even so, it still contains valuable lessons for us all. With Ashes, the long awaited third and final book in the Seeds of America trilogy, going on sale this week, there’s no better time to take a literary journey back to the American Revolution with this impeccably researched novel that shows the lengths we can go to cast off our chains, both physical and spiritual.
