Forge (Seeds of America)

Forge - Laurie Halse Anderson Are you tired of the snow we're having this year? Do you curse the freezing temperatures every time you walk out the door? Imagine having to work (and live) outside all day with minimal clothing and no shoes. I won't even mention the food...This is the continued story of Isabel and Curzon, told from Curzon's point of view. He enlists in the Continental Army again and ends up at Valley Forge.I think that there should be a requirement that this book be read in January or February. It really brought home the sacrifices that thousands of soldiers made during the winter of 1777-1778.
